'Liquidation' Publishing Picked Up By Grindstone, Kickstarter Planned In May

by Rainier on April 8, 2021 @ 8:30 a.m. PDT

Liquidation is a tactical RTS game in which you take on the role of a faction commander tasked with crushing other insurgent factions and stake your claim as ruler of the war-torn world of Veá.

The Liquidation universe blends elements of both fantasy and science fiction to deliver a fresh perspective in the genre with support for both single-player and multiplayer modes. This is tactical RTS, reborn. 

Liquidation takes place in the dying plane of Veá, which has been repeatedly ravaged and drained of its very life essence over the course of a massive war that has been going on for centuries. Now, with the doomed world drawing its last breath, you arise as a lesser deity tasked with restoring the balance in Veá and ending this war before it’s too late.

But which one of the four warring factions are you going to lend your favour to in this war’s decisive moments? Will you even follow your task, or will you be the instrument that brings about Veá’s fateful end?

This publishing deal will see Liquidation benefit from Grindstone’s publishing experience including marketing and community outreach and launching the Kickstarter campaign scheduled for early May, 2021. With the Kiwi Brothers Studio stepping back from the development of the game, the Liquidation community and fans need not worry. Grindstone will be taking the publishing lead and team Divio headed up by Erik Vinclav will take over the development duties and software solutions for Liquidation

“We are thrilled to bring Liquidation to Grindstone’s growing portfolio of exciting titles” commented Peter Nagy, founder and CEO of Grindstone. “ With Divio, one of the key creators from the original team, taking over from Kiwi Brothers Studio and driving the development of the game, we can focus our attention on the publishing side including launching the Kickstarter campaign and building up an active community. We are excited to continue the groundwork already laid out by the team and to establish Liquidation as a must have title for any RTS fan”. 

“The development of Liquidationhas been quite a ride so far” said Erik Vinclav, CEO at Divio. “We are looking forward to taking the lead on the games’ development and working with Grindstone who will be able to take our game to the next level and help us realise our vision for what Liquidation can deliver. We are excited to see what the future holds.” 

The Kickstarter campaign for Liquidation is scheduled to start in May 2021, with the aim of engaging with fans and building an active community to support the next phase of this exciting project. More information on the Kickstarter campaign will be available soon, so stay tuned!
