So Humble Bundle is now a publisher, and we’re “presented by Humble Bundle”. This is the red hot piece of news we’ve kept ourselves from sharing with you for a while now. Since we just got an e-mail saying…
EMBARGO LIFT IS PLANNED FOR FEBRUARY 9. 2017 10.05 PACIFIC NOON TIME
I think it’s safe to say the cat is out of the bag. Dear friends, fans of indie and role playing games, here is the cat:
Humble Bundle Launches Multi-Platform Publishing & Funding Initiative
New initiative brings developers together with Humble’s over 10 million customers; Humble will be evaluating games to publish during GDC and PAX East
San Francisco, CA February 9, 2017 – Humble Bundle announced the launch of a multi-platform publishing and funding initiative. The starting lineup includes seven games across a range of genres and styles, for PC, console, and mobile platforms.
A Hat in Time – The perfect ode to old-school 3D platformers, with a hat-swapping spin
HackyZack – A sticker-collecting, precision-platforming, puzzle-stunt game
Ikenfell – A heartwarming turn-based RPG about a school of magic and its troublesome students
Keyboard Sports – A cheeky adventure with Master QWERTY that uses the entire keyboard
No Truce with the Furies – An isometric role playing game that blends cop show antics with a genre busting “fantastic realism” setting, offering absurd new heights of non-combat gameplay for RPG fans
Scorn – Gripping first-person survival horror set in a nightmarish universe
Staxel – Grow your farm, meet the villagers, and join your friends online in building your world
Publishing Lead John Polson says, “Since Humble’s launch in 2010, we have earned the trust of over 10 million customers across our products. In a time when it’s harder than ever for games to find their audience, publishing feels like the next logical step in the services that we can offer to our developer partners.”
“All of our games will be ‘presented by Humble Bundle,’ carrying a seal of quality and curation that fans have come to expect. For each aspect of publishing, developers can choose the services they need, making Humble Bundle a truly modern and adaptable publisher.”
There you have it. Now we have a publishing and funding partner to fight the good fight along side us. That is: to bring No Truce With The Furies to you at the end of 2017. It’s shaping up to be a real treat for fans of story and roleplaying.
Lets end by wishing the best of luck to all the games sharing that cool-as-a-cucumber line-up with us, especially Scorn. A lot of Scorn fans here.
