Bellevue, WA (May 16th, 2013) – Hidden Path Entertainment is pleased to announce that it has teamed up with Steven Dengler of Dracogen Inc. as its mystery investor in order to help accomplish the greater goal of developing Defense Grid 2 (DG2), after its Kickstarter campaign was just sufficient to fund the Defense Grid: Containment expansion. Thanks to Dengler, the Defense Grid community will be no longer have to cry out, “We want more Defense Grid!” It is now coming in a major way in 2014.
 
Who is Steven Dengler? He is the CEO and co-founder of XE.com Inc., the world’s most used foreign exchange website. He is perhaps an “ultrabacker” on Kickstarter with over 75 backed projects from video games to electronic devices, from web series to documentaries.  He pledged for the coveted speaking role on the new Veronica Mars film and is a frequent supporter of the Desert Bus and Child’s Play charities. Through his investment company Dracogen Inc., Dengler has helped finance other game titles, including multiple titles with Double Fine Productions. Hidden Path Entertainment is thrilled he chose DG2 for his next game investment.
 
Dengler had this to say about his involvement with Hidden Path Entertainment, “I'm extremely excited to be working with Hidden Path to help make Defense Grid 2 a reality. I'm a huge fan of the original game, and it's tremendously satisfying to provide resources to help get the game made. I love that crowd sourced funding provided the first step along the journey.” Dengler continues, “It's amazing to live in a time when the developer, a fan investor, and the fan base of the game itself can get a game funded on their own without relying on traditional publishers. This is a whole new model and it will be fascinating to see how far it can go.”
 
Hidden Path Entertainment is grateful for Steven Dengler’s involvement. Now Hidden Path has the opportunity to give you more Defense Grid. DG2 will be available in the first half of 2014.
