Happy Birthday Hacksaw OpenRGS! Celebrating One Whole Year of Designing, Developing and Distributing!

Over the past 12 months, we’ve achieved some remarkable milestones! We've forged and strengthened partnerships with two innovative studios, releasing an impressive 13 original games. Let's take a quick look back at the fantastic worlds and characters we've helped bring to life this past year.

Looking Back

We kicked off our OpenRGS journey with Backseat Gaming! Lord Venom slithered into the world on the 31st of May 2023. The collaboration with Backseat Gaming continued with: 

- Commander of Tridents
- Sleepy Grandpa
- Fireborn
- Blade Master
- The Cursed King
- Barrel Bonanza
- Space Zoo
- Shadow Strike (11.06.24) 

Barrel Bonanza stood out as a significant highlight, shattering OpenRGS records and proving to be a global hit with clients and players alike.

Reflecting on our partnership, the team at Backseat Gaming shared, "As we celebrate the first anniversary of our partnership with Hacksaw OpenRGS and the release of our debut game, Lord Venom, we reflect on the incredible journey we've had together. Over the past year, we've learned and grown immensely as Backseat Gaming, yet we feel we've only just begun. Collaborating with Hacksaw has been an absolute pleasure, and we are thrilled about the amazing games in the coming year!"

In November 2023, we expanded our collaborations, welcoming Bullshark Games. Our first release together, Mafia Clash, was quickly followed by:

- Merlin's Alchemy
- Piggy Cluster Hunt
- Wild Dojo Strike
- Junkyard Kings

Although the youngest sibling in the list of releases, Junkyard Kings is currently showing us that it could possibly end up being our most successful OpenRGS release yet! 

Speaking to the team at Bullshark, they’re just as excited as us to see where the future will lead us. “It's been an incredible journey for Bullshark Games since the launch of OpenRGS, our valued partner. Throughout the past year, we've collaborated closely, venturing into uncharted territory and brainstorming fresh concepts to captivate players. As we continue along this path, we're excited about the adventures that lie ahead and eagerly anticipate the journey ahead!”

Looking Forward

But what is in store for our future? Hold onto your barrels, because we’ve got some big news. As of now, we are collaborating with another 3 studios, and more to come! Our new OpenRGS partners are:

- NowNow Gaming
- HZF Studios 
- GMG Studios 

You can keep up to date with all of our teasers, latest releases and general OpenRGS news over on our brand new socials.

Currently spearheading OpenRGS operations is our very own Francesca Mifsud, and (if we do say so ourselves) she is making strides ahead of what we ever dreamed OpenRGS could be!

"Reflecting on the incredible journey of building OpenRGS at Hacksaw Gaming over the past year, I am immensely proud of what we've achieved. 

Starting as a solo endeavour, we have grown into a dedicated team of three, with plans to expand further. We successfully launched with two partner studios, Backseat Gaming and Bullshark Games, both of which have been an absolute pleasure to work with. These talented teams bring unique and diverse offerings that set them apart from other studios. Additionally, our content is now live with over 1000 partners in many major markets. This growth has been underpinned by the implementation of robust processes and procedures, setting a strong foundation for continued innovation and success.

None of this would have been possible without the trust and support of Marcus Cordes, our CEO at Hacksaw Gaming, and the entire Hacksaw Gaming team. I am deeply thankful for being entrusted with this project and for the unwavering support. The progress we've made is a testament to our collective hard work and the strong partnerships we've built."

Year of Adventures, Many More to Come

Over the last 12 months, we’ve taken you on an exhilarating journey under the sea, to magical lands, tropical paradises, a gross rat infested junkyard and even to space! Imagine what we have in store for the future. Happy First Birthday, Hacksaw OpenRGS! Here's to another year of innovation and excitement!

Cheers to many more years of creating extraordinary gaming experiences together!
