Thunderful Publishing have signed an agreement with developer FuturLab to publish its next science-fiction game, which is described as “a stylish, high-intensity third-person combat game” and spiritual successor to the Velocity series.
“FuturLab is celebrating its 18th birthday this year, and we’ve had the greatest gift of Thunderful signing our ambitious new IP,” said FuturLab founder and creative director James Marsden in a press release. “It sees our studio returning to science-fiction action, possessing the same DNA as Velocity, but with far more ambition, style, and contemporary relevance. It is nothing short of a dream game, and we cannot wait to share it with the world.”
Thunderful head of publishing Dieter Schoeller added, “We are thrilled to announce our partnership with FuturLab, an experienced studio with marvelous critical acclaim. The game, prototype, and vision presented to us is second to none! While we can’t say much yet, we can be sure that the project launched with James and his team will delight gamers worldwide with a refreshingly new take on the action genre, presented with stunning visual style and super-tight gameplay mechanics.”
FuturLab is currently hiring for a number of positions to work on the new game.
