It allows us to keep proving our worth on the global arena and it also showcases the effort and hard work of our satellite offices and offshore teams to offer quality locations and CRM in the mother tongue of the players”.
In order to break publishing barriers, and not only localize games to reach western markets, IDC/Games’ services also include multilingual and cross-cultural CRM services, hosting, online marketing and specific in-game payment solutions to each region and market.

Berserk: The Cataclysm is a free-to-play collectible card game in which players have to prove their strategic skills by creating their own squads. The game takes place in the fantastic world of Laar, a universe destroyed by the Darkness in which there are limited resources and outrageous creatures who dwell in the lands. The fight for survival results in a continuous battle to conquer the few remaining territories in Laar: only those Ungar sorcerers who achieve to raise the lands towards heaven and create a floating island will survive.
In this adventure of power and glory, players become Ungars and they will have to command their squads to hinder other players and enemies who attempt to snatch their territories. At the same time, they will have to conquer the power of the five elements and improve their magic skills.
