'Black Prophecy' Rights Sold To Publisher, Developer Gets Cash Infusion

Black Prophecy is an Action-MMO where you will not only be fighting epic multiplayer battles and fulfilling exciting single-player missions, but also experience a fascinating story from the pen of prize-winning German science-fiction author Michael Marrak.

By the mid 26th century humanity has conquered the universe and colonized countless planets. Yet life in space requires a great deal of adaptation. Bred for just these conditions, the cybernetically adapted Tyi and the biogenetically optimized Geniden have outgrown their creators to become the new ruling races. Their uncompromising battle for total mastery of space leads humanity into the sphere of influence of an ancient alien life form – a life form which tolerates no other cosmic civilizations but its own. In this battle against an overpowering enemy, players must first choose which of the two rival factions they wish to join as they try to save humanity.

The fascinating science-fiction universe from “Black Prophecy” will present players a complex online universe featuring cinema-quality space battles. A universe in which they fly their spacecraft alone, as a clan member or as part of a fleet as they fight political battles and prove themselves in the fight against extinction at the hands of the aliens. The search for their home world and the answer to their dark secret soon becomes a race to save all the races of mankind.

In addition to many roll-playing game elements and a comprehensive resource-management system the tactically demanding “Black Prophecy” also offers a tremendous depth of play and spectacular deep-space action for the PC.

Today gamigo announced that they have acquired all trademarks and copyrights associated with "Black Prophecy" as well as a 19.9% stake in the developer studio Reakktor Media GmbH from AAA Capital Game Production and Sales GmbH & Co. Fonds Nr. 2 KG. The remaining shares to Reakktor Media GmbH are held by its CEO, Kirk Lenke.

Patrick Streppel, Executive Board Member at gamigo, said this: "Investing in "Black Prophecy" and Reakktor Media GmbH is a forward-looking step for gamigo. "Black Prophecy" is the biggest project our company has worked on so far and is also an example of the high quality of games produced in Germany, completely unique in its market segment."

Rainer Markussen, Executive Board Member at gamigo, said this: "With the completion of closed beta testing and the award for "Best of gamescom (free to play)" last year, I'm really looking forward to seeing "Black Prophecy" go live in the very near future. With that step, gamigo will be cementing its position as one of the leading publishers and producers of premium online games that are marketed and licensed around the globe."

"Working even more closely together will give us more opportunity to trade know-how and will allow us to drive expansions of "Black Prophecy" and new high-quality games forward together," said Kirk Lenke, CEO of Reakktor Media.
