When we announced the adaptation of the Dead Cells board game a few months ago, we also made public our collaboration with La Boite de Jeu in the context of the game’s crowdfunding campaign. That’s right, in order to ensure the logistical success of our campaign, we decided to partner with the very experienced La Boite de Jeu (creators of It’s a Wonderful World, amongst many others) who are well known for their masterfully-run Kickstarter campaigns. La Boite de Jeu will also be helping us with community management during the campaign, and right up until the game is delivered into the hands of backers next year.
Manuel Sanchez, Head of Studio at Scorpion Masqué shares: “We were well aware of the quantity of work and the quality of the expertise necessary to succeed with a project like this. Scorpion Masqué is a ‘classic’ publisher; we simply don’t have the kind of structures in place to offer the kind of quality of service that backers would expect from a project of this caliber. It seemed like a natural step for us to turn to real professional campaign managers to accompany us in this adventure, and help build solid foundations.”
Benoît Bannier, Head of Studio at La Boite de Jeu adds : “For several years, La Boite de Jeu has been running its Kickstarter campaigns with the goal of delivering the best possible games on time and without negative surprises for backers. It is this rigor in campaign management that we have chosen to put at the service of a renowned publisher like Scorpion Masqué. We know how to run campaigns so that your games arrive on time and without worries, and they know how to make excellent games, it seems to us the perfect marriage for Dead Cells to be a real success!”
