GameMaker Studio creator YoYo Games has launched a new indie games publishing division for developers using its tech.
The new team will be headed up by former Outplay Entertainment senior producer Chris Trewartha, who takes on the role of publishing manager.
The first games to come out of the publishing branch are expected to be announced in autumn later this year.
“With GameMaker we have always prided ourselves on developing future game makers,” said YoYo Games GM James Cox.
“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."
