Košice, Slovak Republic - 8th April, 2021. Grindstone is today thrilled to announce a publishing deal with development team Divio to bring the tactical RTS game, Liquidation, to PC via Steam in 2022. Divio has acquired the IP for Liquidation from German developers Kiwi Brothers Studios and has previously worked as part of the development team.
 

Liquidation is a tactical RTS game in which you take on the role of a faction commander tasked with crushing other insurgent factions and stake your claim as ruler of the war-torn world of Veá. The Liquidation universe blends elements of both fantasy and science fiction to deliver a fresh perspective in the genre with support for both single-player and multiplayer modes. This is tactical RTS, reborn.
 

This publishing deal will see Liquidation benefit from Grindstone’s publishing experience including marketing and community outreach and launching the Kickstarter campaign scheduled for early May, 2021. With the Kiwi Brothers Studio stepping back from the development of the game, the Liquidation community and fans need not worry. Grindstone will be taking the publishing lead and team Divio headed up by Erik Vinclav will take over the development duties and software solutions for Liquidation.
 

“We are thrilled to bring Liquidation to Grindstone’s growing portfolio of exciting titles” commented Peter Nagy, founder and CEO of Grindstone. “ With Divio, one of the key creators from the original team, taking over from Kiwi Brothers Studio and driving the development of the game, we can focus our attention on the publishing side including launching the Kickstarter campaign and building up an active community. We are excited to continue the groundwork already laid out by the team and to establish Liquidation as a must have title for any RTS fan”.
 

“The development of Liquidation has been quite a ride so far” said Erik Vinclav, CEO at Divio. “We are looking forward to taking the lead on the games’ development and working with Grindstone who will be able to take our game to the next level and help us realise our vision for what Liquidation can deliver. We are excited to see what the future holds.”
 

The Kickstarter campaign for Liquidation is scheduled to start in May, 2021, with the aim of engaging with fans and building an active community to support the next phase of this exciting project. More information on the Kickstarter campaign will be available soon, so stay tuned!
 

Liquidation is scheduled for an early 2022 release for PC and fans can wishlist the game on Steam now. For more information please visit the official Liquidation website at https://liquidationgame.com/ or follow on the official social media channels on Facebook, Twitter, Discord and YouTube
