Google Stadia continues to shore up its stable of developers and publishing partners. Today, it was announced that Thunderful Games is partnering with Stadia to create a new "available only on Stadia" title for the cloud-based gaming platform is exciting news. Thunderful is a recently-created studio that was founded out of the merger of Image & Form with Zoink, bringing together multiple talented teams.
Thunderful's new project won't be revealed until early 2021, but it should be a great addition to the ever-growing list of games on Stadia.
In the blog post, Klaus Lyngeled, Head of Development at Thunderful Games, discussed the partnership and what it's like working alongside Google.
Earlier this year in July, Google announced a similar partnership with Harmonix (creators of music-based rhythmg games such as Rock Band and Dance Central) and Supermassive Games (Until Dawn, The Dark Pictures Anthology) among many others to create new, compelling games for Stadia.
We have no idea what this new Thunderful title could be, but hopefully it lives up to the quality bar set by the excellent SteamWorld series of titles.
