Curve Games, a division of Catalis and Vespa Capital portfolio company has enjoyed its largest ever opening with new game, The Ascent.
The Ascent, developed by Sweden-based independent, Neon Giant, is a solo and co-op RPG-shooter based in a cyberpunk world which sees players create their own character and battle hordes of underworld foes and gangs battling for supremacy following the collapse of the mega corporation, The Ascent.
Curve Games has achieved its largest ever opening weekend with The Ascent which has generated more than $5million in sales and secured the number one slot in the Steam Global Charts. Over 1,700 YouTube and Twitch channels have streamed gameplay with over 10m generated views and 90% of global Tier One publications have covered Neon Giant’s first title.
John Clarke, CEO of Curve Games commented: “The Ascent is the first game out of Curve where our new team has been able to substantially make their mark, working closely with the developer and our platform partners.”
“Our launch campaign focused heavily on community engagement, with the game quickly becoming a must-play title for content creators, influencers and streamers, enabling the title to rapidly build hype and awareness in the run up to launch weekend.” Clarke added.
