'Drova - Forsaken Kin' Publishing Rights Picked up By Deck 13, Acquires 30% Of Dev Studio

Drova - Forsaken Kin is a handcrafted open world action/RPG filled with adventures and a gritty pixel art look.

Dive through a wall of everlasting fog to discover a society grown from the ashes of a dead empire. Rediscover ancient powers, encounter angry spirits and be a witness as history unfolds.

A society has discovered the power of a dead empire: to capture the spirits that govern nature and rule over them instead. However, the anger of the remaining spirits divided them. Where will you stand?

Journey through dangerous landscapes, fulfill tasks, fight, trade, take a side in a conflict of factions, gather equipment and become strong enough to survive.

You will not find quest markers or minimaps in Drova. Find your own way instead - just like in classic role-playing games. Study your environment and use the surrounding clues to reveal its mysteries.

The game offers a dynamic open world with two factions the player can join - and the world grim, unwelcoming and deadly. Players will become a part of a divided society, grown from the ashes of a dead empire. And it is in their hands how everything will end.

Deck13 and Just2D are also thrilled to announce that Deck13 Interactive GmbH has acquired 30% of the company.

“In partnering up with Deck13 we see a great development chances. Not only for our current project, Drova, but also for the longterm perspective of our Company, Just2D Interactive.” says Johannes Hauffe, one of the founders of Just2D. “Through the intensive cooperation and by working together with our new partner we now have the opportunity to create an even better product and the chance to establish Just2D as a strong brand in the german indie sector.”

“Just2D convinced us from the very beginning with passion, vision and clear knowledge of where they want to go. Together, we have huge plans for the future and we are thrilled that DECK13 was able to secure the publishing rights and also acquire a share in the company!" said Mathias Reichert, Managing Director at Deck13.
