Good news comes for Tangerang-based game developer, Toge Productions. In Gamescom 2019 last August, the company announced its partnership with a UK-based game publisher, Modern Wolf to publish its new RTS game, Necronator: Dead Wrong.
Toge is the first Asian game developer who will collaborate with Modern Wolf. For Necronator: Dead Wrong, Modern Wolf who will not only act as the global publisher. The publisher also gave around US$210,000 to fund the Necronator: Dead Wrong‘s development and they aim to release the game on Steam sometime this year.
Through the press release, Modern Wolf said that it is a developer-centric publisher who always pays attention to game developer’s welfare. Modern Wolf’s CEO Fernando Rizo said that the company wanted to help game developers to create a sustainable business, direct them if necessary, and fund the project until the post-release campaign.
“I have been playing Toge’s games for ten years — I loved the very first games that they made for Flash game portals,” said Fernando Rizo. “Even back then, with those tiny, low-budget games, you could tell that Toge was a special developer. As soon as I knew Modern Wolf was ready to start signing projects, I got in touch with Kris,” he continued.
Rizo also gave a message that Necronator: Dead Wrong won’t be the one and only Toge’s project to be published by them. “Over the past months Kris and I have formed a great working partnership and we are extremely excited that Toge Productions’ Necronator: Dead Wrong will be Modern Wolf’s first released game. We know it’s going to be a big hit all around the world and I hope to be publishing Toge games for a very long time to come. This is just the beginning,” he continued.
