Tencent buys majority stake in Rime Developer Tequila Works

Tencent has not stopped buying or investing in gaming studios over the past few years. Now, the Chinese tech giant has become the main shareholder of the Spanish studio, Tequila Works. The developer is known for games like Rime, Gylt, The Sexy Brutale and the upcoming Son of Nunu: A League of Legends Story.

In a statement, Tequila Works CEO Raul Rubio said, “For 12 years, the teams at Tequila Works have been passionate about creating high-quality titles that showcase our personal sensibilities. But there’s a limit to how much you can grow on your own.”

Rubio said Tencent is a “partner that can appreciate the value of top creative talent with uniqueness as their banner. A partner that respects our independence and creative freedom. This partnership will allow us to focus on taking the original IPs we’re known for further and creating the best experiences we can only dream of.”

Tencent has the resources that will allow Tequila Works to become a stronger studio and produce high-quality studios, which, as President Luz Sancho Tequila Works explains, “all done with care and passion without Our beloved fans know us and the opportunity to bring projects to a wider audience.”

Pete Smith, Tencent’s Vice President of Partnerships also agrees, “Tequila Works’ creativity and attention to detail has resulted in titles that delight audiences around the world. We look forward to seeing titles that will delight audiences around the world. Collaborate with the team and build on these foundations to deliver on its exciting ambitions for future games.”

Tencent’s recent acquisitions include developers like Back 4 Blood’s Turtle Rock Studios, as well as Klei Entertainment and Sumo Digital. Klei is behind games like Don’t Starve and Mark of the Ninja, while Sumo Digital previously worked on Crackdown 3 and Sackboy: A Big Adventure.

Tequila Works is currently working on Song of Nunu, published by Riot Forge, Riot Games’ third-party publisher. This game is about a boy named Nunu and a yeti named Willump, where they solve puzzles and fight wolves in the frozen land of Freijlord.
