Jo Wood grabs a dozen
Publishing deal with Phenomedia expands line-up
In their native Germany Bochum-based Phenomedia are perhaps best known as the warped minds behind the bizarre Moorhuhn cult, which now takes in a whole host of downloadable and web browser games featuring the eponymous bird. On a more serious level though they have also had a hand in cute Viking strategy game Cultures and ambitious first person role-playing game Gothic amongst other titles. Now Austria's Jo Wood have signed a deal to publish a dozen of their games around the world, including sequels to both Gothic and Cultures, as well as original titles like Far West, a wild west strategy game. Whether we will get to see the Moorhuhn in English as part of the deal is unclear at this stage.
