Ubisoft Invests in Indie Metroidvania, BIOMORPH

Ubisoft has officially recognized the talent, scope, and diversity of indie developer Lucid Dream Studio with end-of-development financing for BIOMORPH, the heavily anticipated dark metroidvania now set to launch on April 5th.

Ubisoft RADAR is Ubisoft’s first-ever investment fund dedicated to supporting independent game developers by identifying, financing, and giving a leg up to games created in Quebec. Through RADAR, Lucid Dream has received end-of-development financing to help complete the development of BIOMORPH. Ubisoft RADAR selection marks the second consecutive year where Lucid Dream has been recognized by Ubisoft, as the developer won the National Bank special prize during the Ubisoft Indie Series 2023.

“Three years in and I’m still impressed by the creativity of IOMORPH, both visually and technically. What makes me even happier is to see applications that come with a structured business strategy, a realistic financial plan, and a concern for their human resources. Lucid Dreams had all of this, and the gender parity at the studio won us over.”

- Dominique Champagne, National Bank
