Don’t Starve producer joins Tencent

Klei Entertainment, the developer of Indie genre games such as Mark of the Ninja, Don’t Starve, Oxygen Not Included, Griftland, has been bought by Chinese gaming giant Tencent. A statement said the Canadian company’s majority shares had changed hands.

Tencent increases its weight in the gaming world

Jamie Cheng, founder of the Canadian gaming firm, said via forum, “This agreement will help us exist in the changing industry and allow us to do what we are best at. Create unique experiences. No one else can do that.” Cheng also stated that as part of the agreement, the studio will retain its creativity and autonomy in all its projects. Cheng also mentioned that Tencent is the only company they will allow to maintain the level of control they demand.

Tencent, China’s largest technology and gaming company, has made several investment moves before. Tencent, which fully owns Riot Games, the maker of League of Legends, also owns 40 percent of Epic Games. The firm, which also holds small stakes in organizations such as Activision, Ubisoft, Pardox Interactive, Frontier Developments, Funcom and Fatshark, acquired Warframe developer Digital Extremes and Gears Tactics developer Splash Damage for $1.5 billion in August 2020.


Tencent, on the other hand, was under pressure from the US government with its messaging app WeChat. Other Chinese companies, such as Alibaba and Badiu, later became involved in this crackdown, which affected the firm.
