Starbreeze Entertainment and Melbot Studios today announce GodsTV, a multiplayer “animated punk” top-down action title that’s stylized, irreverent and frenetic, set for release in early 2026. Starbreeze will support Melbot Studios with funding for the game’s development, marketing, community management and release management.
STOCKHOLM, November 3, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — In GodsTV, players are contestants on an insane TV show, a mix of action, humor and quirky characters. Alien corporations posing as “gods” offer players unique abilities and products (guaranteed to be deadly!) to fight for ultimate glory. Choose your God, unlock their powers and weapons, and venture alone or in teams into a gritty and irreverent new universe. It’s not all slaughter and laughter though – show off your style and panache to win the favor of the gods… and your followers. Because in this show, real online viewers can influence the fate of the players. Are you ready to chase the megastar?
GodsTV is developed by Melbot Studios, previously known for the Melbits™ IP and an experienced team forged from indie and AAA titles such as Rise of the Tomb Raider, Fallout 4, Apex Legends, Evil Dead, Endling and Gris.
Starbreeze Entertainment will publish the game and support GodsTV and Melbot Studios with development funding, release management, marketing, community management, data management and analytics.
“Meeting the Melbot crew is like being slapped with pure creative drive, and GodsTV is where their punk style and ambition really shines through. GodsTV is one of the strongest performances I’ve ever seen and I can’t wait to share this game with the world – it’s going to rock,” says Gustav NicerHead of Third Party Publishing, Starbreeze Entertainment.
“From the moment we met the team at Starbreeze we felt we had something big, they identified what made this game special and pushed us to be ambitious, bold and ridiculous.” In an environment where publishers are afraid to venture out, Starbreeze has doubly challenged us to be ourselves, and that *squeal* matters. “, Hosema Roigco-founder of Melbot Studios.
