Bandai Namco Games and Nine Dots Studio Team Up To Make GoD Factory: Wingmen a Reality

on March 5, 2014 11:25 AM

I’ve been following the progress of the squad-based, multiplayer online battle arena game GoD Factory: Wingmen for quite some time, from its first go at Kickstarter, to its tragic failure at reaching its crowdfunding goal for the second time. But there is a silver-lining: Nine Dots Studio have just announced a partnership with Bandai Namco Games, who will be publishing the game to PC, Mac and Linux platforms.

Nine Dots Studio founder Guillaume Boucher-Vidal has talked extensively in the past about wishing to self-publish, especially for creative control and freedom. But crowdfunding isn’t an exact science or a guarantee at success, and so partnering with a publisher is the best option to fund the game and let it reach the audience it deserves.

Having personally played it myself, I think the game is phenomenal, especially considering how little resources the studio has had to make such a polished game (one whose constant improvements in so little time are a testament to the developers’ talent). Now the game will receive additional polish, while we wait to hear a release date announced.

To learn more about the new partnership, check out the Nine Dots Studio blog; to get a closer look at the game and its creators, check out the trailer and develop video below; and for more details, screenshots and videos on the game, check out all of our GoD Factory: Wingmen news.

He loves RPGs (especially TRPGs), sandbox games, the sci-fi genre, dieselpunk, art deco, and anything that allows him to create. Having graduated from John Jay College with a degree in English and a minor in Creative Writing, Masoud hopes to one day pen the same novels, comics, movies, and video games he enjoys escaping into when the real world gets too boring.
