Rolldbox | Barcelona—October 18th, 2023— RolldBox Games, a leading developer in the gaming industry, is pleased to announce that, in collaboration with their publisher Game Hollywood, they have completed the Simplified Chinese localization of their debut game "Those Who Came: Healing Solarus." The partnership with Game Hollywood, a major global online publisher announced publicly last June 28th, has made it possible to offer this immersive experience to the users of our platform.
The cooperative adventure game, Those Who Came: Healing Solarus, combines science fiction elements with RPG mechanics, challenging players to survive on a hostile planet while working together to save it. Whether you choose to embark on this journey solo or team up with friends (up to 4 players), you will face a multitude of challenges and dangers that will test your lateral thinking skills. The game's objective is focused on cooperation over conquest, emphasizing healing and collaboration rather than violence and destruction.
As a young independent studio, RolldBox Games takes pride in seeing their first self-published video game reaching a broader audience, especially in the Asian market that has shown great interest. The team has poured a lot of passion and enthusiasm into creating an innovative indie experience, and we continue to strive for more players from various countries to enjoy it.
Over the past year, "Those Who Came: Healing Solarus" has garnered significant attention, receiving multiple nominations and ultimately winning the prestigious Audience Award at the SAGA 2022 festival. This acknowledgment further validates the dedication and hard work invested in the game's development. This is precisely why we want to announce that a re-release will be launched to coincide with our presence at this year's SAGA.
As of the date of this release, you can now enjoy the updates we've shared with you on the Steam Store and R2 Games.
