Press Release: Gaijin Games Acquires Independent Game Studio, Robotube Games

In an act of total dominance, Gaijin Games acquired Robotube Games today.

 

Robotube Games is an independent game development studio specializing in the development of web-based puzzle games as well as short-form video game documentary filmmaking.

Gaijin Games is an independent game development studio specializing in rhythm-music games and the pursuit of imagination through gameplay.

 

The acquisition comes on the heels of Gaijin’s completion of the critically acclaimed BIT.TRIP series, and marks a new direction for the company. Studio head and CEO Alex Neuse, had this to say:

 

“Our bio-absorption of Robotube Games, its licenses, brands, personnel, and flavors allows us to head in new directions that Gaijin Games was heretofore unable to pursue. Building up brands has always been a passion of ours, and this acquisition allows us to focus on creating more unique franchises faster than ever. As Gaijin Games pursues bigger, more dev-time-intensive projects, Robotube Games will be working to keep the creative juices flowing, rounding out the suite of quality fun-products that you all colloquially refer to as ‘video games’.”

 

In regards to the change in ownership and added financial support that Gaijin brings to Robotube, Jason Cirillo, CEO of Robotube Games had this to add:

 

“Since 1934, Robotube has been creating fun, experimental video games. We’re a small team, but we’ve always followed our philosophy to do what we’re passionate about. Meeting Gaijin made it obvious very quickly that we needed to work on awesome stuff together. Of course, being held nude and at gunpoint isn’t the way I always imagined this would go down, but it couldn’t have been by better guys than the Gaijin team. I was treated humanely during this whole process.”

 

Robotube Games is currently working on an iPad version of Bloktonik, its fresh take on the falling tile puzzle genre, which is targeting a Spring release. Future projects are just dying to be announced, but won’t be until Gaijin and Robotube are good and ready to announce them. Maybe at GDC next week. Maybe not.

 

Gaijin Games is currently working on an unannounced Nintendo 3DS project as well as bringing its multi-award-nominated rhythm platformer BIT.TRIP RUNNER to the PC/Mac. More info on their year of domination will be revealed at GDC next week.

  1. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult
    time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then
    most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
