The giant will help Spry Fox and the new studio Eyes Out publish their games.
Epic Games decided to team up with two indie studios to publish their upcoming games. The new partners are Spry Fox and the new studio Eyes Out.
Cory Davis and Nine Inch Nails guitarist Robin Finck launched Eyes Out previously this year to develop a multiplatform single-player horror game. "The thing I appreciate the most in collaborating with Epic is the fact that we are afforded the creative freedom to create the exact thing that we’ve been dreaming of. When the developer holds that power it invites a different approach to every aspect of the project," Davis said.
"Eyes Out’s partnership with Epic Games Publishing is this simpatico force of being focused on bringing this strange world to light. It’s a think tank. It’s an organization of squares. It’s a clearing in the meadow. It’s the wind at our back. And it’s the pie in our face when we need it," added Finck
The second team is Spry Fox, the makers of life sim Cozy Grove, currently working on an unannounced game described as a non-violent multiplayer title.
"We’re really focused on encouraging friendship and reducing loneliness in the world. I’ve personally always been excited about how games can connect people," said Spry Fox CCO Daniel Cook.
