UK games developer Bonsai Collective has scored a $3.5 million investment from publisher Super.com.
As reported by GamesIndustry.biz, this is the start of a new partnership between the companies, with Super.com stepping in to publish the studio's debut title. This is a first-person shooter project that is yet to be announced.
"Bonsai Collective started its journey with the goal of crafting diverse game worlds, where stories that trust the players' engagement can be explored through expressive gameplay," Bonsai's production director Hollie Emery (pictured) said.
"We are excited to embark on this journey with Super.com as our investment partner and publisher. Now, we are looking forward to growing our studio, with a focus on team wellbeing and diversity, as we develop our first title and original IP."
Bonsai Collective was founded in 2019 by Team17 vet Emery, alongside Ether One director Benni Hill and QUBE 2 art director Harry Corr. Super.com has previously published Raji: An Ancient Epic and is releasing Retro Machina in the future.
