Kalypso Media Celebrates 10th Anniversary
“There is no future in video games.” Those were the words spoken by a German bank when they sent Kalypso Media founder Simon Hellwig away, declining his application for a loan to start his own video games publishing company. Now, 10 years and 220 SKUs later, Kalypso Media is proud to announce a one year run of special events, giveaways and promotions in celebration of its first decade in business. The 10 Years Kalypso campaign begins with the launch of a specially dedicated microsite, which details the history of Kalypso complete with important milestones, behind-the-scenes insights and interesting facts about the company’s history and its games portfolio.
As well as the new microsite, Kalypso Media is also offering a discount promotion, with select PC titles reduced to just 10% of their asking price – that’s right, a 90% discount! The first game to receive this special offer will be the classic adventure game Ceville, from Kalypso’s own Realmforge Studios, reduced to just $0.99. This special price will be available on Steam from June 6th to June 13th.
Kalypso is also rewarding its most dedicated fans by giving away free games to all newsletter subscribers exclusively, starting with Imperium Romanum Gold. Further giveaways will follow periodically in the months to come, so be sure to sign up to the newsletter to be kept up-to-date with all the goings on at Kalypso.
