Brace Yourself is the developer behind titles such as Crypt of the Necrodancer, the Zelda-themed spin-off Cadence of Hyrule, as well as Phantom Brigade. The outfit also currently has city builder Industries of Titan in Early Access.

"After nearly a decade of developing games, we now want to use the resources and knowledge we've gained to help smaller indie developers make their own dream projects a reality," the company wrote on Twitter.

The firm continued on its website: "At BYG, we aren’t looking to publish hundreds of games — we want to work with a small handful of games to which we give our full attention and care. It’s important to us that we only publish games that we love and believe in, with teams that we’re very proud to work with."
