Arthur Protasio, Creative Director, Fableware Narrative Design said, “Partnering with Team17 feels like a pupil being acknowledged by the master. Not only are we long time Worms fans. But we also keep a close eye on the great games published by the label. That’s why when the Brazilian Game Developers Program and the Goethe Institut invited me to Quo Vadis in Berlin. I knew it was THE opportunity to pitch to Team17’s Debbie Bestwick. Just as Fableware teamed up with Firecast and together began a unique co-production. We believe Team17 is a most valuable addition to this endeavour. With each company excelling at their expertise. We have high hopes for the final product. And can now proudly say we’ve joined this experienced indie family.”
