Paradox Interactive have announced that they have acquired Iceflake Studios, developers of the upcoming post-apocalyptic colony builder Surviving the Aftermath. The Finnish studio becomes Paradox Interactive’s ninth total internal studio.

In a press release announcing the acquisition,  Iceflake Studios co-founder and studio manager Lasse Liljedahl said that Paradox and Iceflake’s “like-minded approach” to development had been an important factor in this deal.

“When we started our discussion with Paradox, we knew that we had a very like-minded approach,” said Liljedahl. “Our collaboration with Surviving the Aftermath has been excellent and showed how similar our approach to development is. So when Paradox suggested that we could become part of the family, we were thrilled. It did not hurt that we were fans of Paradox games ourselves, to begin with! This new step helps us to focus on our dream of becoming one of the best developers in the game genres we love so much.”

Paradox Interactive COO Charlotta Nilsson said, “The collaborative efforts we’ve shared thus far with Iceflake have given us all the confidence that this is a natural fit. Surviving the Aftermath fits the Paradox portfolio perfectly, and Iceflake has shown themselves to be the kind of partner who can help us create more titles in our core genres. Turning this relationship into a long-term partnership is an easy decision, and we’re eager to share more great games with our audience in the years to come.”

Surviving the Aftermath is currently in early access on PC via the Epic Games Store, and on Xbox One. You can get more information on the game in our interview with the developers from a few months back through here.

Last month, Paradox Interactive announced that it had opened a new studio in Barcelona, Spain to work on grand strategy titles. Shortly afterward, the company also confirmed that it had also signed a collective bargaining agreement with Swedish unions- you can read more on that through here.
