Roadhouse Interactive and Games Workshop® today announced they have entered into an agreement in which the Vancouver-based studio will develop a side-scrolling action game for smartphones and tablets where you guide a lone Space Marine on his journey to destroy endless hordes of enemies set in the exceptionally rich Warhammer 40,000 universe.
“We are incredibly excited to bring a part of Warhammer 40,000 to life on mobile and tablet and it’s great to work with Games Workshop. The legions of fans of Space Marines will now be able to fight the Ork menace while on the move!” said Tarrnie Williams co-founder and President of Roadhouse Interactive.
“The work we have seen to-date from Roadhouse makes us extremely confident that this new mobile title will be a fantastic addition to the range of digital games we are building,” said Jon Gillard, Games Workshop’s Head of Licensing. “We are extremely pleased that Tarrnie and the guys at Roadhouse Interactive, who are both veteran developers and very familiar with our IP, are going to help expand the Warhammer 40,000 universe into the hands of mobile gamers with this unique take on it.”
