Press Releases
  Happy Birthday, Slitherine
  Share on Twitter RSS

[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

This week, Slitherine is celebrating its anniversary. Twenty years ago, Slitherine was created by a small team of three. They were making the game they really wanted to play, and that game was Legion, a 4X grand strategy set in ancient Rome. Legion sold hundreds of thousands of copies and won accolades and awards when it came out.

“In these twenty years, we faced challenges, we built solid foundations and almost saw them crumble, we made bad choices, and we made great ones”, said Iain McNeil, Slitherine CEO. “We found real friends and made some rivals. We launched good products and even terrible ones. When things got tough, we grew up and rose to the next level. Today Slitherine and Matrix Games are facing unprecedented growth, and opportunities are growing on low branches like never before. We put on a few years, but we look forward to the future with confidence and a promise to keep making games for strategy lovers and never forget where and how it all started. Thank you, everyone, for coming along on this journey with us”. (Here you can find the link to the full letter).
