Known for developing their own games like Cognition and The Silver Lining, Phoenix Online Studios has decided to branch outward to aid other indie game developers with a passion for story through Phoenix Online Publishing, their newly-developed publishing label.
Scott Steinberg, general manager of Phoenix Online Publishing, had this to say regarding the move to start their own publishing label:
“Every game, and game developer, has a story waiting to be told… stories which it’s our distinct pleasure to help creators tell by partnering with leading indies to successfully launch games across all genres and platforms globally. By shining the spotlight on independent game developers, and providing the full range of business management, marketing, and promotional services they need to support their creative vision, we’re proud to provide studios a lasting foundation for success, and bring players the deeper, richer, and more engaging game experiences that they crave.”
There will be four titles for Phoenix Online Publishing’s launch lineup: Quest for Infamy (Q2 2014 on PC, Mac, and Linux), The Last Door: Collector’s Edition (Q2 2014 on PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android), Lost Civilization (4/15/2014 on PC & Mac; Q2 2014 on iOS and Android), and Moebius: Empire Rising (4/15/2014 on PC, Mac, & Linux).
