Karlsruhe, Germany, 26/9/2014 | German company flaregames GmbH, a leading international developer and publisher of F2P mobile games, today announced that the company has entered a publishing and co-development agreement with the acclaimed development studio Remedy Entertainment Ltd. (Espoo, Finland). Remedy is a veteran studio best known for their AAA PC and console franchises like Max Payne and Alan Wake. Remedy have also enjoyed success on iOS and Android with their Death Rally Franchise, a brutal racing game that achieved over 16 million downloads and reached no. 1 in 84 countries. Agents of Storm, co-developed and published with flaregames, will be their first mobile game supported by the F2P business model.

Agents of Storm is a stunning 3D action strategy game for smartphones and tablets. It tasks the player to parachute into paradise, build an island base and lead a team of agents to save the world against the evil Chimera Corporation. The fast paced strategy gameplay equips players with seaborne strike forces and airborne special moves to conquer enemy islands, in epic cinematic battles. The witty storyline will take the player on a roller-coaster journey of plot twists and cool characters. The game is set to launch first on iOS devices globally this Fall and will be free to download.

"This was the fastest deal ever: Matias and I met over a beer in a London pub, talked shop and agreed the terms right there. We both love and understand games - that makes for a great common ground. Also, I have played Remedy’s games since Death Rally in 1996 and love their work. Agents of Storm shows great potential, we’re glad to work with Remedy on its global launch this Fall“, said Klaas Kersting, CEO and founder of flaregames.

Matias Myllyrinne, CEO of Remedy, added: "Buying Klaas a beer was three pounds well spent. Turns out that flaregames is the perfect partner to help us excel with our newest mobile venture, Agents of Storm. For us, first and foremost, a good partnership is about mutual respect and understanding. flaregames bring so much more to the table with a seasoned team of professionals with a track record of scaling mobile games."

This new agreement is part of a larger initiative by flaregames to build an impressive publishing portfolio of high quality mobile games. Recently the company announced that it had signed a similar agreement with Subatomic Studios, Superweapon and Fuzzycube, all US developers with high profile mobile games in the making.
