Games distributor EuroVideo taps Daedalic and others for new publishing label Wild River

PC games publisher and distributor EuroVideo has relaunched its gaming business under the new publishing label Wild River.

As part of the rebranding the company aims to break into the mobile industry for the first time with a slew of games already announced for the next three months.

Tapped up

It’s teamed up with German point-and-click adventure games specialist Daedalic Entertainment to publish 2015 PC title Fire to Android and iOS.

Wild River has also partnered with Hamm-based developer Independent Arts to publish children’s digital pop-up book Knitterbane and Munich studio Morphicon to launch free-to-play strategy game Ghost Tappers on mobile.

The publishing label has also revealed further plans to publish three more titles before the year finishes.

“The mobile market is a cornerstone of our publishing strategy. But of course we know that we’re not going to conquer the most fiercely competitive gaming market in the world overnight,” said Wild River head of games Marc Wardenga.

“We are deliberately launching with a diversified portfolio, both because it gives us the opportunity to learn a lot and because it allows us to show the level of quality people can expect from us.”
