Nocturnal Media is thrilled to announce a new partnership with Ragnarok Publications, a division of Outland Entertainment! Nocturnal Media will be working alongside the creative team at Outland Entertainment's Ragnarok line of published products to make high-quality games and stories.
Nocturnal Media will assume most of the role traditionally associated with a publisher, including sales, marketing, and inventory. All games through this partnership will be co-branded with Nocturnal Media and the Ragnarok Publications brands.
"I've backed several Nocturnal products," says Joe Martin, who co-founded Ragnarok in 2013 and acts as the company's Publisher, "...and I'm taken by their marketing and product intelligence. Jeremy [Mohler] and I are really looking forward to working with a company that knows the games market as well as [Nocturnal] does. They know what they're doing, it's as simple as that."
Nocturnal will assist in the finishing of the roleplaying game Shotguns & Sorcery, based on the novels by author Matt Forbeck (Guild Wars, Brave New World), utilizing the Cypher system ruleset, as well as helping to finish the Horsemen of the Apocalypse card game created by best-selling fantasy author Mark Lawrence (The Broken Empire, Red Queen's War), funded by Ragnarok in a previous Kickstarter campaign.
"Joe and I realize our strengths are in the creative spectrum," adds Jeremy Mohler, Outland's Creative Director. "So, this is an ideal partnership. We can focus on creation and curation of games, while Nocturnal utilizes their expertise and relationships to steer us through the trenches and, basically, lead us forward. It's exciting for all of us."
“The quality of the games, settings, and properties in Joe and Jeremy’s hands following the merger of Outland and Ragnarok is really impressive.” says Stewart Wieck, publisher. “Delivering games to their project backers and gamers everywhere is obviously a priority for these guys and I’m delighted that Nocturnal Media can fill that essential role.”
Look for more news soon regarding future projects!
