To anyone who dabbles in indie games frequently, Image & Form and Zoink should be two familiar names. Known for the SteamWorld games, in the case of the former, and titles like Stick It To The Man and the upcoming Fe, in the latter's case, it was announced today that their owners have joined forces and formed Thunderful, a limited liability company that will wholly own both of the studios. The company itself is owned by Bergsala Holding, who among other things is the sole distributor of Nintendo products in the Nordic region, Brjann Sigurgeirsson and Klaus Lyngeled.

“We already work together on a daily basis in PR, marketing, intelligence and publishing,” says Brjann Sigurgeirsson, CEO of Image & Form and CEO of Thunderful. “Image & Form and Zoink will continue to produce games like we always do, but we’re now formalizing our close relationship. Through Thunderful we can share resources more effectively, officially act together and launch bigger, more ambitious game projects. We’re becoming a real powerhouse.”

The two Gothenburg-based studios will continue to develop games with existing and new IPs under their current labels. "Brjann and I already exchange very much information, so this development is natural,” says Klaus Lyngeled, CEO of Zoink and Chief Creative Officer of Thunderful. “With a group of close to 50 people we’ll grow our clout both nationally and internationally."

As far as numbers go, the company currently has 46 employees, 20 years of industry experience, 9 games in development and 16 titles released. You can find the full press release, alongside more info, on the company's website.
