Rodeo Games today announces a partnership with Games Workshop® to bring their classic game of dungeon adventure in the Warhammer world, Warhammer Quest, to iPhone & iPad in 2013.
Warhammer Quest will be a universal app sold exclusively via the Apple App Store. The team at Rodeo Games is working towards a Q2 2013 launch, but will be presenting an early version of the game during Games Workshop’s UK Games Day at the Birmingham NEC on Sunday 23rd September.
The game is being built on the existing Rodeo Games ‘Taurus’ engine that was used in recent release Hunters 2. “By using our existing engine it means we can really focus on developing the parts of Warhammer Quest that made it such a great table-top game; truly unique hero characters and brutal enemies from across all the Warhammer races,” explained Rodeo Games co-founder Laurent Maguire. “The opportunity to work with Games Workshop was such an exciting prospect; we are thrilled to have been entrusted with this facet of the Warhammer licence.”
“All our passion is being channelled into this game, which I'm sure fans will recognise and respond to!” said Rodeo Games Creative Director, Ben Murch.
'The guys at Rodeo are not only extremely talented developers with a great track record of successful iOS games in their Hunters franchise, but are also huge Warhammer fans,' said Jon Gillard, Games Workshop's Head of Licensing. 'This powerful combination is creating a fantastic translation of this beloved game, as well as making it thoroughly enjoyable working with them.
