Haarlem, The Netherlands - 9 February 2011 - Videogames publisher Iceberg Interactive and game development company Blind Mind Studios have their heads far above the clouds now that they have come to a publishing agreement for Star Ruler, the space RTS for PC. Star Ruler will help players obtain galactic domination from September 2011 onwards.
Iceberg Interactive CEO Erik Schreuder says: "Star Ruler is a great looking game that actually makes you feel like you are in space, from enjoying a stellar-size view for strategic moves to zooming in to the thick of the ship-to-ship combat action when needed. We will hold back the retail release until the game has reached its full potential, something the developer is continuing to work very hard on, while extending its core of followers, a core that we aim to greatly expand on with the in store release later this year."
Andrew Ackermann, owner of Blind Mind Studios says: "Blind Mind Studios is proud to partner with Iceberg Interactive to bring Star Ruler to store shelves. We hope players are as excited as we are for the upcoming retail release; the studio is in full swing, preparing the game for launch. It's going to be something special."
Although the game has had its initial digital release at the end of 2010, the development team of Blind Mind Studios has been and will be working on new gameplay features, additional content and a number of enhancements that will all be included in Iceberg's retail release, as well as patched into Iceberg's digital version. A complete list of final features, including bonus materials for the boxed version, will be made public when closer to the retail release.
Iceberg Interactive will be releasing the exclusive boxed version of Star Ruler into retail stores throughout Europe, Australia, South-East Asia and various other territories. Non-exclusive digital rights are also included in the publishing deal. Plans for localized versions are not final but a German version is certain.
