After almost two years of undercover operation, Koch Media and Reikon Games are happy to finally announce their partnership for a new game and new IP based on Reikon’s original design.
Gamers will get their first taste of Final Form (working title) at Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest on 10 June 2021, with a sample of the tease-trailer; which you can watch here https://youtu.be/fdCr82ZOYCY and download http://press.kochmedia.com/NICFRNEMQG Geoff will also be showing the trailer – and hearing from the team at Reikon - at a special streaming event on Friday 11 June.
Final Form (working title) is a sci-fi FPS taking players on an action-packed adventure as a humanoid avatar of a sentient spaceship. The mission expands beyond the edge of the known Universe, in a race against an unstoppable plague, to protect the last celestial being, essence of life and creation.
The game was one of the key reveals when Koch Media launched its new premier gaming label Prime Matter and will see Koch deliver both physical and digital distribution of the title across PC and console platforms.
“Making this game is like coming back to our roots,” said developer and co-founder of Reikon Games Magdalena Tomkowicz.
Final Form (working title) has been brewing and growing for a long time, inspired by our passion for exploring the unknown and nourished by works of art that contemplate possible futures of mankind, the civilization we call our own and whatever might lie beyond.
We’re looking forward to revealing more of FF, its blood-pumping movement and combat, breath-taking environments and haunting universe. The main focus of our work is the soul of the game.”
Operating out of Koch Media's head quarter in Munich, Prime Matter is a dynamic mix of seasoned industry veterans and enthusiastic fresh faces creating an incredible team of diverse multi-cultured gaming experts.
Working in conjunction with Koch Media’s global publishing offices and development partners - and headed by industry stalwart Mario Gerhold - Prime Matter will lead through creativity, expression and passion, with games that will grip and enchant with enthralling story-telling, winning an audience with its incredible moments and larger-than-life experiences.
“The partnership with Prime Matter has been very fruitful and inspiring. We're excited to be in the avant garde of the label,” added Magdalena Tomkowicz
