With the Indie of the Year awards in full swing, we’re excited to announce the sponsor for this year’s awards - the indie-focused publishing arm of Tripwire Interactive, Tripwire Presents!
This year marks a big year for DBolical, with the 20th anniversary of Mod of the Year commencing over at ModDB and a great showing from indie games on the site for IndieDB. It’s sure to be one hell of a competition, and we’re delighted to have Tripwire Presents onboard!
Formed in 2005 as a humble independent developer and founded by gamers who found success in the video game modding community, Tripwire Interactive has developed and self-published multiple critically acclaimed titles in the wildly popular Killing Floor and Rising Storm franchises, which have collectively sold over 20 million units to date. The studio’s most recent hit release, Maneater, breaks new ground in the popular action RPG genre and finds players taking on the role of a deadly shark with the uncanny ability to evolve as it feeds.
Since then, Tripwire Interactive has expanded its business with the publishing division, Tripwire Presents, turning its experience and resources to include publishing titles spanning multiple platforms and genres from other talented independent studios. Tripwire Presents aims to help like-minded independent studios bring their titles to market, including Chivalry 2 developed by Torn Banner Studios, Espire 1: VR Operative developed by Digital Lode, and Road Redemption developed by EQ Games and Pixel Dash Studios.
The publishing division has added additional staff which allows the company to help like-minded independent studios who have a product that needs the experience and resources to successfully bring their game to market. Each deal will be tailored to the needs of the partner and their game and could include funding and marketing resources, but also having access to the Tripwire team’s vast knowledge and experience for development and production via guidance and feedback to benefit the game’s overall quality.
If you are a game developer and would like to share your ideas with us, then please don't hesitate to contact us. Tripwire Presents is always looking for new projects to collaborate with, no matter how big or small. As an independent developer ourselves, we understand what you are currently going through, but more importantly, what you are about to go through. Making video games isn't easy, so we'd love to guide you through the difficult process of turning your dream into a reality.
Let's do what we love to do and create the next great game. Together.
Thanks again to Tripwire Presents for sponsoring the 2021 Indie of the Year awards! Keep your eyes peeled for more content over the voting period, including exciting news for Chivalry II and their own pick in the Editor’s Choice this year!
