Leading Indie Label Team17 have today announced their partnership with Minsk based indie developer Weappy Studios. Together they will be releasing the criminally good This is the Police on PC and other platforms.
“We hope our Kickstarter backers will join us in celebrating our new partnership with Team17. Thanks to Team17’s Indie Label we can focus on developing the game that stays true to both our and our backer’s vision of the project; whilst knowing that the marketing, PR and community interaction will be handled with the same love and attention. Having seen what Team17 have already done for previous crowdfunded titles like The Escapists, Beyond Eyes and Sheltered they were an obvious partner,” said Ilya Yanovich, Co-Founder at Weappy Studio.
Debbie Bestwick, Team17’s Managing Director added, “As soon as I saw This is the Police on Kickstarter, I was a fan. It’s a fantastic looking game and the team at Weappy are obviously very talented. It’s a pleasure to welcome them to our growing Indie Label and we’re excited to help them realize their vision.”
This is the Police is a strategy/adventure game about power and corruption, duty and choice.
Meet Jack Boyd the law-abiding, soon-to-be-retired police chief of Freeburg (brought to life by the talented Jon St. John, the voice of Duke Nukem).
Jack’s had enough of seeing useless corrupt cops get rich on the proceeds of crime – the same ones who are now forcing him out of the job he loves – so to get even he’s going to show them how it’s done. Setting himself a target of making half a million in his last 180 days on the job, Jack’s ready to get his hands dirty in a whole new way!
The developers have declined to take any additional development funding from Team17 so please support This is the Police by checking out Weappy’s Kickstarter campaign. Team17 will provide funding for Marketing, PR, community engagement and additional non-development costs.
