'The Patrician Online' Announced

by Rainier on Aug. 17, 2010 @ 8:18 p.m. PDT

The Patrician Online is a browser-based game based on the well-known trading simulation series The Patrician. Thousands of players can experience the glory days of the Hanseatic League and build up their own trading empire. The focus of the game will be on trading goods between players and creating effective production chains.

Patrick Streppel, member of gamigo's executive board: "Our strategy of taking popular games brands and turning them into browser-based games to create a whole new gaming experience online will be continued with The Patrician Online. Kalypso Media is the ideal partner for us because our different strengths allow us to work well together."

Simon Hellwig, Global Managing Director of Kalypso Media: "This partnership is really a win-win situation for us. The Patrician Online will make our brand stronger while enriching the community greatly at the same time."

The Patrician Online is developed by Kalypso-owned studio Gaming Minds in cooperation with Funatics Software, who have already shown us how modern browser-based games can look and work with Cultures Online. The developers are building the game along the lines of The Patrician IV, which will be available in stores in the beginning of September. Included with the game will be a code that will give players access to the closed beta test of The Patrician Online.
