The passion is the game, and the newly inked partnership between OTK and Notorious Studios is a reflection of both organizations’ zeal and love for gaming – especially MMOs, RPGs, and expansive, imaginatively populated worlds. While it’s certainly unexpected for OTK to invest in a game studio, Notorious’ new relationship with OTK is most notable for how naturally it fits together.

We believe this partnership will change indie game development forever.
