Advent Rising, the BloodRayne Series, and others Become Latest Additions to Ziggurat Interactive’s Impressive Collection of Games
Ziggurat Interactive, a recently formed publisher of multiplatform retro and modern games, announced today they have purchased the rights to multiple game licenses previously owned by Majesco Entertainment. This includes the fan-favorite BloodRayne franchise and others. As part of the purchase, Ziggurat has taken ownership of popular action titles BloodRayne, BloodRayne 2, BloodRayne: Betrayal, Advent Rising, and Raze’s Hell, along with the 3D puzzle platformer Flip’s Twisted World.
Ziggurat Interactive is already working with original BloodRayne developer, Terminal Reality, to update the PC versions of the BloodRayne games to make them fully compatible with current gaming systems and hardware. Ziggurat also indicated plans are under discussion for the franchise's long term success as they further explore the expansion of BloodRayne’s already rich universe.
“Bloodrayne is a beloved series with a huge fan base, this acquisition is a significant milestone in the evolution of our catalog and Ziggurat Interactive’s role as publisher to restore gaming past and shape its future,” said Ziggurat Interactive’s President, Wade Rosen. “Players the world over fondly remember BloodRayne and Raze’s Hell and having the opportunity to not only bring these games to a new audience but to expand their universes is something we look forward to eagerly.”
"We are really excited to have this opportunity to revisit one of our favorite game series and make it available to a new audience," said Mark Randel, President, Terminal Reality, Inc.
The third-person horror action series introduced gamers to Rayne, a brutal half-vampire beauty traveling the world to foil Nazi plans, battle supernatural threats, and along the way, uncover more about her own complex past. Featuring a unique protagonist, fast-action combat, vampiric powers, and an extensive globe-spanning storyline, BloodRayne offered a distinctly different and exciting gameplay experience that encouraged being “good to be bad.” Beloved by fans and critics alike, BloodRayne became a true cross-media phenomenon, spanning games, comics, and films across the early 2000s.
