Nival, developer and publisher of cross-platform, social strategy games, announced it has invested in Bytex, a Russian online game development studio with extensive HTML5 experience. The investment will be used to launch Berserk: The Cataclysm, a collectible card game that is now available for players via an open beta test on Facebook.

"We believe in the collectible card game market, unlike some big publishers, and expect fans of the genre to see why we're so excited about Berserk: The Cataclysm," said Dmitri Karasev, founder and CEO of Bytex. " Berserk is an IP that's proven very popular in Europe and we expect existing fans and newcomers will enjoy the versatility HTML5 offers them when experiencing the game."

Berserk: The Cataclysm

Bytex, located in Saransk, Russia, was founded in 2004 and has focused most of its development time on collectible card games. HTML5 allows for games to be easily played through a web browser on different platforms, including Windows, Mac OS, iOS and Android, so games are immediately available on computers, smartphones and tablets.

Bytex will draw on the investment and expertise of the Nival team to launch Berserk: The Cataclysm, a strategic collectible card game that includes 600 unique collectible cards illustrated by prominent international artists and six types of battles, including PvP (Player-versus-Player) and PvE (Player-versus-Environment) and asynchronous PvP, allowing players to battle even when one is away from the game.
