Expanding its publishing services, Team17 has opened a dedicated publishing office in Nottingham. The new office will form the centre of its commercial and publishing activities for both first and third party games.
Team17 recently announced its return to third party publishing and has already announced Light, The Escapists, Hay Ewe, Schrödinger’s Cat And The Raiders Of The Lost Quark, Overruled! and Penarium for release across multiple platforms in 2014.
Team17 has a unique approach to third party publishing, openly attempting to challenge and disrupt traditional publishing models in order to make the process a more fair, balanced and supportive partnership for indie developers. Team 17 offers a truly unique service; co-development, digital and boxed publishing, along with general support. Does not look to control your IP; Team17 can offer funding and even help with office space for select games.
The company’s European Publishing office has been opened to focus on the delivery of results to its third-party partners while maintaining a boutique approach. Our objective is to help Indie developers grow and sustain their own business.
Managing Director, Debbie Bestwick, commented “We’ve been staggered by the number of Indies that have approached us and even more so by the services they require. Simply put, traditional publishing cannot deliver what Team17 can. Opening a publishing office gives the publishing side of the business a separate identity and will sharpen our focus even further. We are actively recruiting for commercially-minded and innovative publishing personnel across a number of areas to help build upon 2013’s record breaking year.”
