Advantage will also be offering the Kalypso titles into Play and Amazon on our behalf, we will be dealing directly with the other major retailers. We have a very strong line up for 2009/10 and with Advantage as our partner we will be able to maximise the opportunities that are available to us.
Max Butler, General Manager at Advantage Distribution added; "Kalypso is an ambitious new publisher with a very strong vision and catalogue of great games. We are delighted to have been chosen to help make this vision a reality and to further establish Kalypso with the hardcore PC gamer. We are particularly pleased that Kalypso has recognised the experience we have with the independent sector. Historically this is a key retail channel when it comes to breaking new publishers and formats and independents have a particular understanding of the PC gamers needs."
