Since Fall 2019, the company has partnered with various Korean developers, boosting global efforts and scaling their respective titles, including JoyCity’s Gunship Battle: Total Warfare, ANGames’ AstroKings and Clegames’ Reign of Empires. In addition to Korea, Tilting Point will continue to expand its universal presence in 2021 by partnering with, and offering its expertise and services to major developers across the globe, with more news on this front to come very soon.
“Storytaco has done a great job of creating a narrative-driven game that has captivated audiences, and this partnership allows us to bring that thrilling storyline into the hands of even more players,” said Tilting Point president Samir Agili. “Our team has immense experience in boosting Eastern games in Western markets, and we are confident that this full live publishing partnership will help increase Dangerous Fellows’ popularity within the story-based game genre and worldwide.”
A visual-novel based dating simulator game, Dangerous Fellows takes place during a zombie apocalypse where players must find their right romantic partner and ultimately survive the apocalypse together. Selected by the 'GSP PLUS' project of Korea Creative Contents Agency (KOCCA), Dangerous Fellows was ranked #1 in the story-based category two weeks after launch, and saw immediate success in the U.S., Canada and Vietnam following global release.
“Tilting Point is a leader in scaling great games, and we are thrilled to be partnering with them to continue building excitement, momentum and recognition for Dangerous Fellows,” said Storytaco’s CEO Jaeil Kim. “With Tilting Point’s support, we now have the opportunity to be active in more global markets, as well as create better gaming experiences that will be enjoyed by our female-centric audience.”
