About TopWare Interactive
For years, TopWare Interactive has developed successful brands, built international presence, and published award winning blockbusters of all genres; manifesting itself as a proverbial "breath of fresh air" in the video game industry. Evidence of this fact can be seen in the successful IPs generated by in-house development studio Reality Pump and other top licenses acquired from external developers. Games such as "Jagged Alliance 2", "Earth 2160", and "Two Worlds" are just a few of the award winning box office hits to emerge from this unique and innovative studio.
Being a privately held and financed company and operating without any impeding foreign control, TopWare Interactive is able to make quick decisions and adjustments to adapt to a constantly evolving global marketplace. Currently, the company is the only worldwide, independent Game Publisher with its own in-house development resources, with more than 25 years of entertainment industry experience. Over the years, that experience has given the video game community such innovative milestones as the first CD-ROM (1992), the first DVD-ROM (1997), and the first BD-ROM (2008) containing gaming content.
Beside this, TopWare Interactive is the first German based company appointed as a licensed Publisher by both Microsoft and Sony for their, respective, next gen platforms. This provides for a solid future product portfolio on multiple platforms and distribution channels. Presently, TopWare develops for and publishes on PC, Mac, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3; although, future platforms such as the next gen Xbox and NATAL continue to remain insight. In fact, in the PC sector, TopWare retains a close partnership with Intel, AMD and Nvidia, striving to propel innovation and remain on the cutting-edge of state-of-the-art technology.
