FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LONDON, UK – January 23, 2014 – This week SKARA, The
Blade Remains joined the list of games available via Steam
Greenlight, the worldwide distributor of videogames online.
It took SKARA only eight days to gather the support necessary
from the Steam Community.
“We couldn’t believe SKARA had over 240 votes in
only two hours!” exclaimed Pablo Rodriguez, CEO and Creative
Director in charge of SKARA. “The votes of support were
really the best reward after so much work.”
SKARA plans on bringing massively multiplayer gaming to a new
level, by creating a new gaming genre: MOV - Multiplayer Online
Versus, where as many as 16 players enter arenas to engage in the
kind of real-time combat fighting seen in versus games.
“Steam, in many ways the pioneer of online multiplayer
gaming, is the ideal platform to launch SKARA” said Cesar
Ortega, CFO of SKARA. “We are really glad and thankful to
have a place there now going forward.”
For its part, the Steam Community seems happy too.
“These titles were selected on the same criteria we have
been using in the past” said the Steam announcement regarding
2014 Greenlight games. “Votes in Greenlight give us a hugely
valuable point of data in gauging community interest.”
SKARA was also named one the
“most anticipated games of
2014” by video game blog Two Dash Stash.
From the beginning, members of the SKARA team realized one of
the hardest things for a video game is to get any attention prior
“What’s the most amazing in my opinion is that
nobody has had the chance to play the game yet,” said
Rodriguez. “They don’t know how good it is!”
