The Parasight’s Blacktail to Receive Backing from Tencent

Partnership Designed to Help Build Long-Term Growth

 

The Parasight-Tencent Partnership

 

Developer The Parasight has announced they are now officially being backed by Tencent.

Founded in 2019, The Parasight is a team made up of 20+ experienced developers, and is currently working on Blacktail—a first-person, surreal action-adventure game surrounding the story of Baba Yaga.

“I’m excited for everything the future holds for this partnership—with this, THE PARASIGHT joins the ranks of top-tier developers who have Tencent’s backing.” said CEO & Creative Director Bartosz Kaproń. “We are an experienced team, but a young studio. Having Tencent with its experience and vast technological background invest in our vision, BLACKTAIL and future projects shows incredible faith in our team, and we aim to honor that trust.

While now officially partnered with The Parasight, Tencent has stated that they still intend to leave full creative control in the hands of their new partner. This includes elements such as projects, talent, publishing rights, and IP ownership. The plan between The Parasight and Tencent is set up in such a way to ensure that The Parasight will be able to experience long-term growth as a studio.

“In two years we’ve tripled our dev team and built a brand new IP from scratch.” continues Kaproń. “Our first franchise, only months ahead of launch, is attracting attention from all over the industry. Announced via IGN Showcase and featured at The Game Awards ID@XBOX demo event, we’re aspiring for BLACKTAIL to be one of 2022’s most creative next-gen premium indie experiences. Current industry support and recent Tencent involvement indicate that there is ground for future developments in that particular genre. This is still the beginning of our journey.”

 

 

No official release date on Blacktale has been set, but, if The Parasight’s newest partnership is anything to go by, things seem to be going well for the studio.

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
