Atlus U.S.A., publisher of Demon’s Souls, GameSpot.com’s 2009 Game of the Year, and Frozenbyte, developers of Shadowgrounds and the award-winning Trine, today announced a publishing partnership for an as-of-yet unannounced 2011 digital distribution title.
“We couldn’t be happier signing our new game with Atlus. As an independent developer we felt that partnering with a publisher who is flexible and shares our vision of the game was the best way to bring the game out to a large audience,” said Lauri Hyvärinen, CEO of Frozenbyte. “We can’t wait to unveil the mystery – I’m confident that we’re creating one of the best titles of 2011!”
“In a short amount of time, Frozenbyte has established itself as a premiere international developer, delivering original, critically-acclaimed interactive entertainment,” stated Tim Pivnicny, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Atlus. “Their last release, the cooperative physics-based action-platformer Trine, achieved arguably more acclaim and success than anybody expected, and left an indelible mark on the industry.
More details about their upcoming project will be disclosed upcoming E3 2010 Expo in Los Angeles, California.
