Description


History

Before Carsten Fichtelmann founded Daedalic Entertainment GmbH in 2007, he had been the marketing director and head of product management at the Hamburger Publisher dtp for six years. Daedalic published their first game on 5 June 2008, which was a humorous adventure game called "Edna & Harvey: The Breakout", which emerged from a thesis by the Creative Director Jan Müller-Michaelis. It has sold very well and received numerous major awards.

Shortly afterwards, the adventure game "1½ Knights – In Search of the Ravishing Princess Herzelinde" was published, named after the same film. On 28 August 2009 the adventure game "The Whispered World" followed and the adventure title "A New Beginning", which focuses on climate change, was published on 8 October 2010. In 2011 the sequel to "Edna & Harvey: The Breakout" was released with the title "Harvey’s New Eyes". A year later, a new adventure named "Deponia" was released to the market, which received several awards as well.

In May 2014, German publisher Bastei Lübbe acquired a majority share of 51% in Daedalic Entertainment.
