Paradox Entertainment signs licensing deal for Mutant Chronicles: Warzone and Chronopia

Swedish games developer Paradox Entertainment has licensed the rights to recreate the miniature games Mutant Chronicles: Warzone and Chronopia to the American company Excelsior Entertainment.

The brands, MC: Warzone and Chronopia, are both part of Paradox Entertainment's brand portfolio. Since the company is only focused on creating game software for PC and Internet, Paradox Entertainment has chosen to license the rights to another company to develop the brands in other media.

MC: Warzone is based on a Science Fiction world and has been produced as a miniature game since 1995. It has been created into 16 different local editions. At its peek the game sold over 2 million copies during one year and was awarded the Origins Award: Game of the Year. There are over 100,000 MC:Warzone players in the world today. Chronopia is based on a dark fantasy world and was first published in 1997. It has also been recognised as an excellent fantasy miniatures game with a growing fan base. Excelsior Entertainment will market both miniature games worldwide.

"There are thousands of fans patiently waiting for new material from the miniature games MC:Warzone and Chronopia. We are currently producing MC:Warzone as an online game for PC and other consoles and we are convinced that the cooperation with Excelsior will contribute to strengthen the brands, MC:Warzone and Chronopia," says Nils Gulliksson CEO for Paradox Entertainment.

"Excelsior Entertainment has positioned many of the original talents that helped to create these properties along with some exciting new projects to make sure that MC: Warzone and Chronopia receive the best possible treatment and development," stated Thom Talamini, CEO of Excelsior Entertainment. "With the many exciting plans already in development, we are confident that MC: Warzone and Chronopia will continue to please fans and thrill retailers and distributors alike."
