Stillfront Group has said that it will be acquiring collectable card game company Everguild Limited.
The deal is worth £1.06m ($1.37m), of which £54,000 ($70,000) is being paid out in newly-issued Stillfront shares.
Everguild based in Madrid, Spain and also operates in the UK. The firm is known for its card games – such as Drakenlords and The Horus Heresy: Legions – which are primarily mobile titles but the latter project came to Steam in March of last year.
"Joining Stillfront represents an amazing opportunity for Everguild to continue scaling up, bringing our love for deep CCGs to a larger audience," said studio founders Andres and Isabel Tallos.
"Stillfront's focus on long lifecycle games fits perfectly with our commitment to nurture and grow the passionate communities of players that enjoy our games."
Stillfront CEO Jörgen Larsson added: “With the acquisition of Everguild, Stillfront enters the fast-growing CCG genre, further broadening our gaming audience and adding additional titles to our portfolio of role-playing games. Everguild is a small and agile studio active within an exciting and popular niche. Everguild’s successful game The Horus Heresy: Legions has substantial growth potential going forward, and the studio has a promising pipeline of new games."
