Never Forget Games, a studio by Wildlife Studios, is excited to announce the launch of its first game, Midas Merge. Never Forget’s co-founders Ray Mazza, the creator of Merge Dragons, and his long time partner Mike Duke, who together collaborated for over a decade on the iconic “The Sims” franchise, have reunited to once again redefine the merge genre.
“We’re deeply grateful to Wildlife for their partnership and trust in our team. Launching Midas Merge is a remarkable achievement for us, one that was only possible because of the creative freedom we’ve enjoyed throughout our journey”, said Ray Mazza. “This is the first game of many to come and we couldn’t be more excited. The long term engagement from players is like nothing we’ve seen before”, complemented Never Forget Games’ co-founder Mike Duke.
In Midas Merge, players embark on a quest through the once radiant Gardens of Gold. Tasked with dispelling the mysterious shadows, they’ll harness their merging skills and nurture mythical creatures as they discover rare treasures and take back King Midas and Queen Lya’s lands. Crafted with passion, this game is not just a fresh take on the merge genre but a dive into a deep, engaging journey.
This is the first game made by one of Wildlife’s international studios. “We began to expand our studios internationally in 2021 and Midas Merge is the first game coming out of that effort. With more to come, we want to be the company that honors talented creators the most, making it easier and faster for them to build games that will mark our generation”, explains Fernando Sette, Wildlife’s VP of Studios. “Ray and Mike have crafted something truly special and are sharing a deep, heartfelt experience with players”, he complemented.
The announcement comes just a few weeks after Wildlife launched AFK Football, a creative mix of soccer strategy and RPG from one of their Brazil-based teams. “After the positive response to AFK Football, we were eager to reveal Midas Merge to our players”, said Peter Hill, CEO at Wildlife Studios. “The level of engagement we are observing only reinforces our commitment to supporting the incredible work of our internal and affiliate studios.”
Midas Merge is available now on both Google Play and the Apple App Store. For more information, please visit: https://midasmerge.com/. For more on Wildlife, including their latest releases like AFK Football, visit wildlifestudios.com.
