Nicalis Inc., the developer and publisher of several titles such as Cave Story, 1001 Spikes and The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth and its expansions, has announced that it has acquired two new development studios – SuperVillian Studios and Cowboy Color.
Nicalis CEO and Executive Producer Victor Rodriguez said about the acquisition:
We’re super-excited about these new additions to Nicalis. Their creativity and knowledge of the art form will help us to achieve more of our long-term goals.
SuperVillian Studios previously worked on several original games and ports for several platforms. Their portfolio includes titles such as Dungeon Siege: Throne of Agony, Endless Skater, Order Up! and several Tony Hawk series titles. The studio has already joined the rest of Nicalis Inc.’s development team to work on a completely new game.
As for Cowboy Color, the fairly young studio, which was founded in 2015, has already produced several titles including Legend of Ball, Handsome Mr. Frog, and ChargeShot. The studio is currently already working on a new side-scrolling action shooter which will now be released under the Nicalis Inc. brand.
