J.U.L.I.A. Drops Publisher

CBE Software announces the cancellation of their publishing agreement with Lace Mamba Global, saying the publisher has failed to meet its financial obligations for PC game J.U.L.I.A. and iOS title J.U.L.I.A. Untold. They also announce that J.U.L.I.A. is now the subject of a Steam Greenlight campaign to support a remastered version of the adventure game that addresses some comments from users. Here's word:

Jan Kavan, director at CBE software, comments upon the current situation: "It's an extremely sad ending of the past four years of our life. We've created the game using our very own budget without any external funding yet we were able to create a title we are really proud of. When well-known publisher, whom we have trusted so much, behaved like that, it was an extremely demotivating experience for us. Moreover we've handed them both games as finished products so there was not any risk involved for them. Such nefarious behavior had an absolutely destructive impact on our small independent studio. Unfortunately similar story just recently announced by Colibri Games (Tiny Bang Story) ensured us that it's not a misunderstanding and that we have to act."

To recover from this situation CBE software would also like to announce that J.U.L.I.A. has been added to Steam Greenlight.

"We plan to do a remastered version with changing things which were not all that well received by players and we will include a bonus soundtrack as a part of the Steam release. Even if you own the game already, please upvote J.U.L.I.A. there. Steam could help us survive the situation and recover from this unexpected blow. If we get greenlit, we will also issue a patch for existing J.U.L.I.A. owners which will add the remastered functionality., finishes Jan Kavan.
