Kwalee, today announces its expansion into publishing games on PC and console platforms. As the start of this plan, the company released Eternal Hope as their first game on Steam. Developed by Brazilian indie development studio Doublehit Games, Eternal Hope is a 2D puzzle game built on emotional storytelling.
With Kwalee looking to grow its catalog of titles, it will soon be joined by PC and console games across multiple genres and in a wide variety of styles.
Max Everingham leading push onto PC and console as ‘Eternal Hope’ launches
Further underlining Kwalee’s commitment to PC and console games is the recruitment of Max Everingham as Head of PC & Console Publishing.
Everingham is highly experienced in launching hit titles. Over the years, he has held senior roles at several companies such as Ubisoft, Pandemic and Codemasters, and Team17.
“I could not be happier to be joining a company with the energy and integrity of Kwalee,” said Max Everingham, incoming Head of PC & Console Publishing. “It’s a joy to be working again with David on his quest to become as successful in the PC and console arena as Kwalee has already been in mobile.”
Kwalee CEO David Darling is just as enthusiastic: “We’re delighted to be welcoming Max to the team as we launch Eternal Hope, and we encourage developers of all sizes to start a conversation with us. On a personal level it’s great to link up with Max again having previously worked together at Codemasters, and his recent achievements with Team17 show that there’s no better person to be leading us to success in PC and console game publishing.”
Looking for new developers to collaborate
Kwalee, founded by David Darling, has expanded dramatically in recent years and now employs more than 100 people worldwide with offices in Leamington Spa, Bangalore and Beijing. Having launched massive hits such as Bake It, Let’s Be Cops 3D and Teacher Simulator all in 2020, Kwalee’s experienced team will be working to grow its influence in the new space to a comparable level.
Kwalee is actively looking for new developers to collaborate with and new games to publish on the new platforms.
Everingham, “If you’re a developer of quality games, we want to hear from you! We can promise a true partnership – our leadership are bona-fide developers, just like you, and we want to succeed together.”
