Spiders Games has been sold to Bigben Interactive

Founded in 2008 by seven partners, Spiders Games is a leading independent video game development studio. The company is widely recognized within the gaming industry both in Europe and globally for its ability to develop innovative games (narrative and action RPGs), as well as for the quality of its productions.

Since inception, Spiders Games has developed six games, of which five original IPs (Faery: Legends of Avalon, Mars: War Logs, Bound by Flame, The Technomancer and Greedfall). All games are built under Silk engine, Spider Games’ own multi-platform engine and toolkit. Greedfall, the latest original IP game developed, will be released September 10, 2019 on all major platforms of the market (PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4).

By adding a major video game development player to its group, Bigben Interactive integrates strategic skills and assets to achieve its stated ambition of becoming a global leader in the “AA” video game segment.
