While Sony does not want to get into cross-platform gameplay, it has decided to work with Nintendo again. Sony announced that a new publishing label called Unties will be releasing indie games for Nintendo and PC gamers.
Geek.com is reporting that the label will launch on November 21 with the release of an indie game called Tiny Metal for the PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch.
“With the growth of game development environments, high-quality game development has become possible even in small-scale environments, and the evolution of digital publishing has made it easier to distribute developed titles to users worldwide. On the other hand, with a mixed bag of titles overflowing the market, there are also situations where interesting titles are buried without being noticed.
“At Unties, we dig up the masterpieces buried in those situations and support them so that more users notice and pick them up. We spread information about excellent games and sell titles for multiple platforms,” said Sony Music Entertainment in a press release (translated by Gematsu). “The name ‘Unties’ comes from the thought ‘to unleash the excellent talents of unique game creators all over the world’ and ‘setting creators free from the various shackles of game publishing, named from the intention of realizing publishing that is free of production without restraints.’”
There are three other titles with release dates that have yet to be determined. Last Strand and Merkava Avalanche are confirmed for the PC but other platforms are to be determined. However, Deemo Reborn is slated for the PlayStation 4 with PS VR Support. Like the others, a release date is yet to be determined.
