Gloomywood announces today an acquisition of holdings from Celsius online in its capital. Frédérick Raynal’s « Retro Game Band » thus joins forces with one of the leaders in French online gaming.

« If Celsius is investing in Gloomywood », declares Lévan Sardjevéladzé, manager of Celsius online, « it’s not because I was a fan of Alone in the Dark, but because I’m very confident in Gloomywood team and its project 2Dark! And beyond that, I am convinced that there are numerous synergies to be found between our two structures. »

« At last, some young blood! » praises Frédérick Raynal on his side. « I really congratulate myself on this association which should allow Gloomywood as well as Celsius online to explore new territories! »
