Daedalic Entertainment Opens New Development Studio

Well it looks like they couldn't keep themselves away from making their own games, so to make sure that they make the caliber of games that everyone has grown used to when see the Daedalic Entertainment logo they have opened up the brand new studio, Daedalic Entertainment Studio West. Now as we have seen in the past this is not always the easiest of moves, just look at the EA sister studios, or hell even the Blizzard North studio, but hopefully this studio will be around for at least as long as those studios, and maybe even longer. Now of course I'm hoping to see some awesome games come forth from the studio, and of course they aren't going to be giving any of their secrets away just yet as to what their first project will be. For more information I give you the official press release on the matter:

Daedalic Entertainment Studio West: Story-telling specialist establishes new development studio
 
Hamburg/Duesseldorf, July 14th, 2014 – Today, Hamburg-based adventure game and story-trelling specialist Daedalic Entertainment establishes a new development studio that is supposed to operate from Duesseldorf, Germany.
 
The new studio, operating under the name of Daedalic Entertainment Studio West, is a sister company of Daedalic Entertainment. Carsten Fichtelmann is appointed as Managing Director for both the parent company as well as Daedalic Entertainment Studio West. He founded the new studio together with industry veterans Andreas Suika, who takes over the role of Creative Director, and Technical Director Dirk Steenpaß.
 
"Our new studio continues our strategy of developing high quality story- and character-driven games. At Daedalic Entertainment Studio West, there will be a lot of similarities to what we’re doing at Daedalic’s head offices in Hamburg, however, the new Duesseldorf studio will rather be focusing on genres other than adventure games”, explains Daedalic founder and Managing Director Carsten Fichtelmann. “We’ll soon reveal details on Daedalic Studio West’s first project”, he adds. “Together with our industry veteran partners Andreas Suika and Dirk Steenpaß, we‘re very happy to not only start a new adventure for Daedalic, but also to secure Daedalic’s future development.”
 
“Making the dream of creating a really good game come true does not only require a partner who is ready to commit to bring it what it needs on the development-side of things, but also excels in marketing a product. It’s not easy to develop an outstanding game, but Daedalic is the right partner and gives the right set up to do so. Now, Daedalic opens up another base for developing great games”, says Daedalic Entertainment Studio West Creative Director Andreas Suika. “Over the past weeks, we realized that we share important values and ideas, and that we complement one another perfectly. Since the very first minute we met, we are seeing a very creative exchange happening between the creatives of both teams“, Andreas Suika adds.
 
Daedalic’s new studio now also allows the company to look for development talent in other areas than Hamburg.
 
Details on Daedalic Entertainment’s Studio West’s first projects as well as the office location etc. will be revealed soon.

The Deponia-trilogy is a multiple award-winning series of point & click adventure games, telling three ludicrous stories, set on the trash planet of Deponia and its bizarre surroundings: While Deponia’s regular inhabitants are forced to live on the planet’s trashy surface, the – literal – „upper class“ enjoys bliss and luxury in the floating city „Elysium“. Between both castes resides the Organon on giant monorail cruisers. The Organon is a group of grim officers controlling the fate of both the inhabitants of Deponia as well as Elysium.
 
Anti-hero Rufus lives on the Deponia surface, between junk and recycled things. All he dreams of is finding his way to Elysium, to finally leave what he thinks of is a stupid live. He’s an inventor and nothing can stop him from coming up with ideas for machines that will take him up on the space ship. However, no matter how hard he tries – he never actually had any success yet, and all he makes it to is the Organon level of things. There, he meets Goal, a beautiful girl from Elysium, whom Rufus takes for being his ticket to paradise.
 
Deponia is a series of hand-drawn 2D comic point & click adventure games, full of sarcastic dialogues and black humor. Deponia has won a number of impressive awards, such as the “Best Game 2013” trophy at the German Computer Game Awards for Chaos on Deponia, the second game of the series.
