has announced a new partnership with Gamingo
to bring the Patrician series to browsers. Patrician Online
will be released in German before it is translated and available in English. We should still see this up and running sometime next year. The potential for Patrician Online
to be an engrossing trade game and social platform is great, and this is certainly a smart move on Kalypso
