Paradox Arc, the independent studio and publishing arm of Paradox Interactive that focuses on supporting smaller studios, announced that it will publish Starminer from CoolAndGoodGames. The game is inspired by classic games such as Elite, Wing Commander and Star Control. However, it will be more of a tower defense with RTS mechanics.
Paradox Interactive is best known for Cities: Skylines and other popular strategy games such as Stellaris. Paradox Arc is a relatively new “branch” of the company. Fortunately, the titles that Paradox Arc has released so far have been quite well received on the market.
