Tequila Works signs publishing agreement with Microsoft Studios
New independent Studio Tequila Works is delighted to announce that their first title Deadlight is to be published by Microsoft Studios exclusively for Xbox LIVE Arcade.
In an apocalyptic world where there is no reason to exist, a man crosses the American west coast. Surviving is much more than a daily routine in this original cinematic puzzle platformer. Deadlight is to be released as an XBLA exclusive title in summer 2012.
Tequila Works, based in Madrid was founded in September 2009 by Raúl Rubio Munárriz and Luz Sancho Rodríguez. The team comprises veterans in the entertainment industry, with an impressive track record in the development of games such as the Commandos and Motorstorm series, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Diablo III, Heavy Rain, and Overlord II.
In announcing the publishing deal, Raúl Rubio, CEO and Creative Director at Tequila Works stated, “our philosophy is to create tasteful things. Our team integrates highly experienced people who still keep the ability to see the world with amazement every day, and enjoy challenging their creative talents”.
“Being published by Microsoft Studios, one of the world’s largest publishers, is a true reward for all the team hard work. The opportunity to work with first-party publisher Microsoft Studios is a dream come true, and shows their commitment in the talent of small independent studios.”
Luz Sancho, Chairwoman, added: “Since our first conversations, Microsoft Studios understood Tequila Works spirit and our attention to detail. They believe in us and the way we create”. “XBLA is the perfect platform for unique AAA bets with a character of their own. We want to create something truly special for Xbox 360”, remarked Raúl Rubio.

@GriftGFX: the world needs to open up to pvp ie 8v8 etc. Use ARMA Wasteland mod for guidance and you have a sure fire hit but they won't even be thinking that far ahead. An open world game that looks (4 Hours ago)
