We're very happy to announce a new publishing division, partnering with leading independent developers who are creating high quality, innovative indie games with GameMaker.
Building on our reputation for nurturing the next generation of game developers, we have created a publishing team headed-up by Chris Trewartha, formerly Senior Producer at Outplay Entertainment. The publishing arm of YoYo Games will focus on bringing GameMaker games to the masses.
“With GameMaker we have always prided ourselves on developing future game makers. We are now excited to partner with and help the incredibly talented developers in our community to take their next step into the world of publishing and ultimately commercial success”, said James Cox, General Manager of YoYo Games. “We are blessed with a very creative community, who create highly innovative games. There is a real opportunity for us to act as a conduit to success for these developers, by providing them with our commercial expertise, advanced knowledge of the GameMaker platform and the investment clout that can take them to the next level and beyond.”
“We want to build a portfolio of games, made with GameMaker, that really stand out from the crowd through their concept, design and mechanics,” said Chris Trewartha, Publishing Manager of YoYo Games. “We will work with the developers to give them the support they need, enabling them to realise their full potential.”
The team are in the process of reaching out to GameMaker developers and are hoping to announce their first games later this Autumn. Developers who are interested in speaking to the YoYo Games publishing team can contact firstname.lastname@example.org .
