WayForward Celebrates 25 Years of Games!

Valencia, Calif. – 03/02/2015— Hello friends, fans, and game industry folks! WayForward would like to formally invite you to join us in celebrating 25 years as an independent game developer. Voldi Way founded the company in 1990, (naming it in honor of Sci-Fi writer Douglass Adams) with the goal of building a one-of-a-kind studio where passionate people could create great games together. A quarter century and countless titles later, Voldi’s entrepreneurial spirit still drives WayForward forward. From Fun Pack to Pirate’s Curse, we’ve poured every ounce of our energies into making memorable characters, music and stories while always putting game play first. Throughout 2015 we would like to celebrate with you in a variety of ways, including new titles featuring familiar characters and even a few new faces. And as you might expect we’ll throw the number 25 around now and again, just to get a cheap laugh.

Speaking of cheap, our first (and probably best) way to kick things off is by putting as many of our “fan favorite” titles on sale, with many being reduced to a mere 25% of the original price. A sale like this requires coordination by many of our partners worldwide so prices and dates are subject to change. Check back here for up to the minute details.
