UK's Leading Indie Label Continues Global Expansion With The Signing of US Indie Game Deadwood: The Forgotten Curse
Company: Team17
Wakefield, UK – 7th May 2015 – Games industry veteran Team17 today announced the global expansion of its indie label with the signing of Florida based independent developer Steamroller Studios’ forth coming release Deadwood: The Forgotten Curse.

“Everyone here at Steamroller Studios is super excited to be partnering with Team17. We’ve been huge fans of them since the beginning, and so when we found out the feeling was mutual, we jumped at the chance to work with them. With their experience and support we’ll be free to do what we do best, which is to make an awesome game. The passion they’ve shown for our game is only matched by our own. We’re confident that together we’ll make Deadwood: The Forgotten Curse the game we’ve always wanted to make,” said Keith Lackey, Technical Supervisor at Steamroller Studios.

Deadwood: The Forgotten Curse is an action/adventure game with a unique survival twist. You play as Lathe, a teenage woodling and an avid inventor. During your adventure you are accompanied by a stone giant named Roguard and together you must fight back a horde of wooden zombies, better known as "The Deadwood", and stop their curse from spreading through the land of Knottington.

By day, Roguard will protect you from the Deadwood allowing you the freedom to explore the land of Knottington. You’ll scavenge for resources and then use those resources to craft your weapons and defenses because when the sun sets, Roguard falls fast asleep leaving you alone to fight back the Deadwood and protect your stone companion. With the right balance of strategy and skill you may just survive the night.

Debbie Bestwick, Team17’s Managing Director added, "Team17 has a long-standing reputation with gamers around the globe, and we work hard to uphold their expectations as we continue to expand our award-winning indie label. Steamroller Studios is such an incredibly creative and talented team that we're not only excited to be working with them on Deadwood: The Forgotten Curse, but also, to welcome them as the first US-based addition to Team17's indie label."
