SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Danke Games and Row Sham Bow today announced a partnership with Zynga (NASDAQ: ZNGA), the world's leading provider of social game services, to bring Knights of the Rose to the 306 million monthly active players on the Zynga network.

Knights of the Rose is an epic tactical RPG that brings a deep gaming experience to social platforms. Combining traditional RPG mechanics like character leveling, looting, and crafting with strategic combat and player vs. player battles, Knights of the Rose brings the captivating role playing experience that hardcore gamers expect into the social realm.

"Perfect World has created a very deep, yet broadly appealing RPG for social networks and we couldn't be happier to bring this game to market," said Dan Kelly, CEO of Danke Games. "We selected Row Sham Bow as a co-publisher because of its live operations expertise, analytics know how and optimization capabilities."

"From the moment we saw Knights of the Rose, we wanted to be a part of this unique partnership with Danke Games to bring this distinctive game to Facebook," said Philip Holt, CEO of Row Sham Bow. "Based on our great relationship with Zynga, it was only natural that we would also leverage its publishing platform to distribute and promote Knights of the Rose across its massive global network of active players."
