American McGee’s Spicy Horse Games studio, developers of unique games like Akaneiro: Demon Hunters, Crazy Fairies, and American McGee's Grimm, has partnered with DeNA. The two companies are working together on the development of Hell Invaders (working title). The collaboration includes launching Hell Invaders for mobile devices on DeNA’s Mobage social game network and platform.
"We here at Spicy Horse are really looking forward to our partnership with DeNA on Hell Invaders," said Spicy Horse studio head American McGee. "It's not very often we get a chance to suck magic knowledge of successful development directly from the brains of such awesome hosts. Combining their DNA with our already bizarre flaming horse form will result in something awesome or hellish – or both!"
DeNA is an established leader in developing and publishing engaging and entertaining mobile games with major successes on the App Store and Google Play top grossing charts. In addition to launching first-party and second-party games, DeNA brings its expertise in game development and building successful apps to third-party developers, including Spicy Horse.
“American McGee’s delightfully twisted creative mind combined with Spicy Horse’s high-quality visuals and production brings together some of the most intriguing elements for an epic mobile game,” said Barry Dorf, senior director of DeNA West’s third-party team. “DeNA is excited to work with American and the team at Spicy Horse studio that have for years been recreating and reimagining ancient folklore to bring a fresh and twisted new experience to gamers. Get ready for Hell Invaders as you won’t want to miss this dark fantasy tactical RPG enhanced by the best elements of the card battle genre.”
