Slick announces news on company's 10th birthday

Slick Entertainment, best known for N+, has marked it's tenth anniversary by announcing it'll be joining up with Don't Starve creator's Klei Entertainment.

The news was announced in a blog post commemorating a decade of Slick Entertainment, and as a result the specifics of the deal and how things will function still haven't been completely revealed, although you can expect Slick Entertainment to continue to support their existing games. Three of their titles feature online multiplayer, so the continued support commitment will buoy the communities of these games.

"To many of our fans it will come as no shock that Slick and Klei have a long history that started well before either company was even started." the blog post states, "Jamie Cheng and I worked together at Relic Entertainment, and we remained friends after Jamie set off on his own to start Klei. Then the N+ project came along, but Klei had other commitments at the time. So Jamie called me to see if I would want to start a company to do the project, and this is how Slick Entertainment was started."

"Over the years we have worked together on numerous occasions. We watched Klei grow from a small startup to a professional studio with an amazing level of quality, support and community. With us joining Klei, we intend to extend those qualities to the games we’ve released. We’ll mainly be working on making great new games, but don’t worry, we’ll still support the current games.
Lastly, and most importantly; I’d like to thank all of you for the decade of support. It’s been an amazing journey and we couldn’t have done it without you!"
