Jolly Rover, the award-winning indie adventure from Australian developer Brawsome, will soon be hitting retail shelves thanks to a publishing deal with Lace Mamba Global. The retail version will come with exclusive extras including a high quality soundtrack and bonus concept and hi-res art as well as using uncompressed art assets for the game.
The deal grants Lace Mamba worldwide exclusive rights for retail distribution and localization into German, Spanish, Italian, Russian Polish and French.
“Jolly Rover is a fun, hilarious classic adventure game with dogs! The reviews have been good, and when we were presented with the opportunity to take this to retail worldwide we thought it would be lot of fun to work on a product of this sort,” said Glenn Hayes, UK Sales Manager of Lace Mamba Global.
“There’s been a lot of excitement around this announcement,” added Brawsome Founder Andrew Goulding. “Getting a physical copy of the game out there is a dream come true for me. Hopefully this will be allow me to keep doing what I love. Working with Lace Mamba is also really cool, as they really understand adventure games, and are a publisher of one of my favourite titles of last year – Machinarium.”
People can look forward to the Jolly Rover boxed version for PC & Mac in February 2011. The game can also be pre-ordered at Amazon: and Play.com.
