We. The Revolution receives Paszport Polityki

WARSAW, POLAND , January 15, 2020 – Klabater is pleased to announce that yesterday the opinion-forming weekly Polityka rewarded the game We. The Revolution and its creator, Dawid Ciślak, with the prestigious Paszport Polityki award.

The Polityka awards gala was held yesterday evening. One of the recipients (in the Digital Culture category) was Dawid Ciślak, the creator and the visionary behind the game We. The Revolution. The publisher and promoter of the game is Klabater. The jury awarded Dawid with distinction:

For using the setting of the French Revolution to show the corruption and intimidation of judges, as well as forcing the player – thanks to the brilliant use of the potential of the interactive medium – to confront their own conscience.Polityka

Dawid Ciślak with Paszport Polityki

On behalf of the whole Klabater, I congratulate Dawid on this great achievement. Paszport Polityki is the most prestigious cultural award in our country. We are proud that we could be involved in this project as a publisher,” said Michał Gembicki, Board Member of Klabater – “We. The Revolution from the very start drew attention with its ambitious approach and deep message – that’s why we decided to publish and promote it. The game turned out to be a hit both in terms of quality and sales, arousing interest all around the world, including France, where it was appreciated by the largest mainstream media and where a scientific conference has been organized under the patronage of the French Ministry of Culture. Now this potential has been appreciated by the Polityka team, of which we are very happy. “

In We. The Revolution the player plays as a judge in the Revolutionary Tribunal and issues sentences concerning simple citizens, revolutionaries, and aristocracy. However, the protagonist has to be careful no to become the enemy of the revolution himself – otherwise he too may face a deadly sentence. Despite that, the plot of the game is not limited to court rooms; in the background of those there grows the protagonist’s personal life, as well as a complicated, political game.

 

Since March 2019 the game is available on platforms:

Once again, congratulations for Dawid and whole Polyslash team!

Dawid Ciślak (born in 1987) – originator and the main author of “We. The Revolution,” a game (created by the Polyslash studio), which, despite the plot set during the French Revolution, relates to the contemporary Poland. The player – playing as a judge – issues sentences, themselves being subjected to all sorts of pressures, temptations, and threats. The author (a political science student born in Sosnowiec, and later a graduate in film and television production at the Faculty of Radio and Television of the University of Silesia) forces us to inevitably confront our conscience. Furthermore, it shows the mechanisms of corruption. Dawid began his adventure in the world of cinema, but he abandoned it in favour of the interactive medium, the conventions and possibilities of which he understands better than anyone else. By setting the game during the French Revolution and the times preceding it, he continued the long tradition of Polish artists (Przybyszewska, Wajda, Klata) who were exploring this setting for references to their contemporary times.

THE COMPANY FINALIZED THE PURCHASE OF HELIBORNE GAME AND BRAND CREATED BY JETCATGAMES STUDIO.

WARSAW, POLAND, January 15th, 2020 – Klabater SA, a game developer and publisher listed on NewConnect, has purchased from JetCatGames studio full rights to Heliborne game and brand – a networked modern battlefield and helicopter simulator in one. Up to now, nearly 100 thousand players from all over the world has bought the game. The majority of customers are players from the USA, Germany, Russia and Australia. The current wishlist of users interested in acquiring the title amounts to 100 thousand. There are also as many as 15 DLCs available for the game. 

Klabater became the publisher of Heliborne in 2017 and since then the game has remained one of the best-selling productions in the Company portfolio. Despite almost 3 years of its presence on the market the title still sells very well with a steady growth on wishlists, and there are still many players on the servers (800 players per day on average).

Klabater, recognizing the huge potential of this brand, was talking about the conditions of acquisition with the developers of the game in recent months.

“In 2017 we decided to become the publisher of the Heliborne PC version because we had already noticed the huge potential of this brand. Heliborne turned out to be our most popular publishing title, so we decided to buy the game from the developer and invest in the brand further.” said Michał Gembicki, member of the board at Klabater. “We are convinced that Heliborne is only just speeding up and requires active support in terms of production, maintaining the attention of the community and further marketing activities such as gaining new users. Simultaneously with the purchase of the game, we also created a development team, which will start working on the modernization and development of the game from February this year.”

Later this year, Klabater plans to develop and release Heliborne: The Definitive Edition, fully re-mastered, taking into account the expectations of the community and with new content, a new version of the game. The company will soon communicate the exact scope of work and content of the new game edition. A fully dedicated production team works on these improvements. At the same time, the porting department at Klabater, together with the development team, has been working on releasing the game on console platforms – PlayStation 4 and Xbox ONE.

“As the publisher of Heliborne we have had an influence on the promotion of the title so far, but unfortunately not on the development of the game itself. Last year, the gaming community demanded new content and events in the game, among other things, and we could not deliver it. We are convinced that this will change with the takeover of the IP rights,” adds Łukasz Mach, the marketing director at Klabater.

About Heliborne

Heliborne is the debut production of JetCatGames which has gained recognition among fans of realistic simulators, fans of military aviation and militaria fans. The player takes control of the most famous military helicopters in history, from classic machines from the 1950s to modern helicopters of the 21st century. The game offers a single player mode where you can test your skills during historical missions taking place in such war-stricken areas as: Korea, Vietnam or Afghanistan. The networked multiplayer mode enables direct competition with players from all over the world in numerous modes such as team deathmatch or capture the flag. In terms of gameplay mechanics, Heliborne draws inspiration from MMOs (Massively Multiplayer Online Game) such as World of Tanks and World of Warplanes, enriching them with realism in rendering the battlefield and particular attention to detail in the mechanics of flying a combat helicopter. The game also enables you to play in Skirmish and Frontline modes. The first one resembles a conquest known from the Battlefield series. Players fight against each other and occupy the territories located on the map. Their task is to reduce the number of opponent’s points to zero. The Frontline mode you need to take over the connected sectors in an optimal order, which will eventually lead to break into the fields controlled by the opponent.

Thank you 2019!

2019 was a great year but also a huge challenge for Klabater. We’ve closed the year with many premieres (PC & consoles), among them crucial ones: Crossroads Inn and We. The Revolution. Both games ended up among the most popular titles of the year in special Steam end-year ranking. It means that they stood out from the background of thousands of Steam premieres in 2019! We are so happy and proud!
The most important events for us in 2019 were certainly:

– Klabater’s New Connect debut
– Successful premieres of both We. The Revolution and Crossroads Inn
– Establishing in-house porting department with few console games already launched (including Golazo!, Big Pharma and Apocalipsis)
– Success of Crossroads Inn campaign on Kickstarter
– A contract signed with Discovery for Moonshiners games and a title based on Animal Planet format
– Apocalipsis available in Microsoft’s gamepass service
– MKiDN grant for The Amazing American Circus prototype and presence at Gamescom 2019

We are thrilled and excited about 2020! We hope it will be even better! Stay tuned!

BIG PHARMA WILL DEBUT ON PS4, XBOX ONE AND NINTENDO SWITCH ON 5TH OF DECEMBER

WARSAW, POLAND, November 14, 2019 – Big Pharma, a PC best-selling pharmaceutical management sim, will be launched for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on 5th of December. It is the ideal choice for gamers who are looking for both deep management & strategy mechanics and easy pad-adapted controls. 

REVIEW CODES

Review codes will be available Nov. 20 (Xbox One/Switch/PS4). To request keys:

 

Big Pharma is part business sim, part logistics puzzle. It’s one thing to work away in the lab perfecting new formulas, but converting the ‘sciency stuff’ into cold hard cash means bringing an engineering and business mind to the problem. Factory space is expensive, and those fancy new agglomerators and centrifuges don’t always slot nicely together.

What if you had it in your power to rid the world of disease, to improve the lives of millions, to ease suffering and cure the sick and earn a tidy profit? As the head of your own Pharmaceutical Conglomerate you have this power resting in your hands. Will you use it for good? Being totally altruistic may not be the best business plan. The uncomfortable truth (is there an ointment for that?) is that some remedies are more profitable than others and illness is good for business. Welcome to the world of Big Pharma!

After a very successful launch of our medieval tavern sim, Crossroads Inn, we now travel back to the future and focus on the development of a modern pharmaceutical conglomerate. We are sure that the console players will enjoy this combination of a deep business sim, logistical puzzles, and simplicity of a console’s interface.” – Lukasz Mach, Klabater CMO. – “We put a lot of effort to adapt PC controls and steering to consoles and I’m certain that there’s not much more we could do on that field, as the game plays perfectly on pad now.”

In Big Pharma you will find:

  • 35 business-busting challenges spread out across 7 unique scenarios
  • Custom game mode
  • Freebuild mode
  • Tons of new ingredients and recipes to discover
  • Hi-tech machines to help you refine the next generation of world-changing drugs.
  • Wide range of business models to fit your Pharmaceutical Conglomerate

Big Pharma will be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on 5th December (29.99 USD/EUR). For more information, please visit Klabater’s FB page.
