Majesco Entertainment has founded a new indie publishing brand called Midnight City. The label’s initial line-up includes 10 games from developers including Barnyard Intelligence Games, Tuesday Society Games, and Mario von Rickenbach.
Midnight City will be helmed by former IGN editor-in-chief Casey Lynch as VP of publishing. Lynch will be joined by Doug Kennedy, former president and CEO of Reverb Communications and Reverb Publishing.
“Having been front and centre watching the tidal wave of independent games coming through IGN, Majesco’s move to get behind these games truly speaks to the commitment they are making to the independent development community,” said Lynch.
“Over the years we have seen tons of really great games coming from smaller independent studios and our vision at Midnight City is to offer these games and development teams a wide range of services and support. We're here to help with everything from first-party relations, QA, promotion and community building and to put a spotlight on the titles while freeing the development teams to focus 100 per cent of their energy on building the best games possible.”
Midnight City will show off its 10-game line-up at PAX Prime in Seattle, WA from August 30 to September 2, 2013.
