Nicalis Inc. Acquires Eugene’s Game Studio Cowboy Color

Nicalis Inc., developer and publisher of such video games as Cave Story, 1001 Spikes and The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+, announced  that it has acquired two talented and diverse game development studios: Irvine, California-based SuperVillain Studios and Cowboy Color of Eugene, Oregon.

Cowboy Color was founded in 2015, but in less than two years its team has produced a surprising number of retro-inspired games, including Legend of Ball, Handsome Mr. Frog and the frenetic multiplayer deathmatch game ChargeShot. “Becoming a part of Nicalis… it’s a perfect fit,” says Cowboy Color’s founder Britt Brady. Cullen Dwyer, also a founder of the studio, adds, “It’s a great honor to be in the company of games like Cave Story and 1001 Spikes.”
