ascaron - South Africa

Ascaron Entertainment

Ascaron Entertainment was a video game developer based in Germany. Founded as Ascon and later renamed in October 1996 due to the possible confusion with the Swiss company Ascom AG, the company produced titles primarily for the PC until it was made insolvent in 2009.
Ascaron Profile

Ascaron was a computer game company headquartered in Gtersloh, Germany. The company was founded in 1991 under the name Ascon by Holger Flttmann and developed entertainment software for the German market for 18 years, with games franchises like Patrician, Port Royale, ANSTOSS (On the Ball) and Sacred. Later it also became known for its publishing and distribution activities. In August 2001 the company went into administration for the first time. However, the re-establishment of the company keeping all IPRs and brands made it possible for Ascaron to continue its operative business and to survive.

In July 2002, Ascaron expanded by opening a wholly-owned subsidiary, Studio II Software in the University City, Aachen (Germany) and in September 2002, the first international office, Ascaron Entertainment (UK) Ltd. with its main office in Birmingham, was founded. After many years of continuity the company got into financial difficulties once more. According to a spokesman of Ascaron this was due to immense costs and extended time for the development of Sacred 2: Fallen Angel. In April 2009 Ascaron Entertainment went into administration again. This time the company did not recover and negotiations began with "several well-known interested parties" to discuss a positive takeover.

In June 2009, Kalypso Media acquired the majority of licenses and assets of company when the firm entered insolvency. Among the games titles acquired were Port Royale, Darkstar One, On the Ball and The Patrician.

On June 18, 2009 it was announced that fifteen former employees of Ascaron would be part of Kalypso's newly acquired studio Gaming Minds Studios GmbH.
