Tough Guy Studios, an independent micro studio and creator of the critically acclaimed and off the wall mobile cult hit, Time Ducks, has secured funding for its next visionary title. CAT Game Invest a subdivision of CAT Science have invested $350,000 in the Tough Guys development studio to finance the multi-platform project that will be announced later in summer 2013.
“As a small indie developer, we have always valued our own independence and the prospect of securing funding for the second Tough Guys project whilst simultaneously retaining this was quite daunting,” said Morten Sommer, CEO and Games Designer at Tough Guy Studios, “In CAT Science we found an investor that understands our crazy game ideas and supports us financially with the freedom of letting us make the product we want for our gamers”.
“As an investor we are flooded with game concepts that are presented to us each year we found Tough Guy Studios’ concept to be extremely interesting,” said Allan Rasmussen, Investment Manager. “A great team with a great game concept is what we are always looking for. So we did not take very long to decide to invest in this project since we are convinced that this is going to become a great investment.”
Tough Guy Studios was founded in May 2011. The Tough Guy manifesto emphasizes that the gaming experience follows the Pareto distribution: 20% is induced by gameplay and 80% by the players imagination and emotions. The TGS games are all created with a tremendous respect for the medium and for the player. The game must always tickle the players conceptions and transcend the actual gaming experience.
