Ahead of 2023’s EVERSPACE 2 launch, ROCKFISH Games has received a sizable 1.65 million Euro grant from the German federal parliament.
The latest distribution of the German games fund grant by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection bolsters video game studios of all sizes in Germany. This will allow ROCKFISH Games the ability to jumpstart the development of additional content for EVERSPACE 2.
According to Michael Schade, CEO of ROCKFISH Games:
“The government’s continued interest in supporting German studios shows a commitment to fostering local talent and the creation of new IP in a growing creative field. As we close in on the launch of EVERSPACE 2 in 2023, our team is looking to what’s to come in the future, and this grant is helping make it happen. We’re excited to share that ROCKFISH Games will be using this grant as part of our €3.9 million major expansion for EVERSPACE 2 planned to release in 2024. While we’ll have more to share about this content in the future, I will say that this major expansion will give EVERSPACE fans more star systems to adventure in as we explore stories focused on the companions of EVERSPACE 2.”Michael Schade
In January 2023, Lee Guille will join ROCKFISH Games as Communications & PR Director from Canada. Previously working with independent developers worldwide, he brings a decade’s worth of communication, marketing, and PR experience from roles across both gaming and ecommerce industries.
According to Lee Guille, ROCKFISH Games Communication & PR Director:
“I’ve been a fan of EVERSPACE for quite some time now and have admired the team’s transparency and commitment to working with the community during development. In working with the team at ROCKFISH, I saw an incredible commitment to creating polished, exciting adventures that combine three of my favourite things: spacefaring action, deep RPG mechanics, and lore-filled science fiction stories. I can’t wait to help take this incredible franchise into the future!”Lee Guille
