Green Man Gaming Publishing partners with French studio DEVS MUST DIE on Skybolt Zack

By | Blog

Green Man Gaming Publishing are thrilled to announce their latest publishing deal and first ever console release. The partnership with French developer, DEVS MUST DIE, will bring Skybolt Zack – an all new take on high speed, reflex testing, platform action – to gamers worldwide later this year.

Skybolt Zack was originally created as a student project at Parisian video game school, ISART Digital Paris, and draws inspiration from classic platformers and Japanese rhythm games. Starting out on PC, Green Man Gaming Publishing will be taking its first step into the console market as the game will also launch on Nintendo Switch.

On the move to console, David Clark, Managing Director of Green Man Gaming Publishing, had this to say: “It has long been an ambition for Green Man Gaming to expand our horizons and extend our reach beyond PC gaming. When we first saw Skybolt Zack it was almost immediately apparent that this was the game for us to make that jump! The work that DEVS MUST DIE have done with Skybolt Zack in a relatively short time have impressed us tremendously. They are incorporating options for players which we’re not seeing in products from much larger, long standing studios and we can’t wait to show more to the community at various events across the summer.”

Green Man Gaming Publishing Announce Global, Multiplatform Publishing Deal for The Galactic Junkers

By | Press Releases

The Galactic Junkers

Evil Twin Artworks’ comedic space combat adventure game coming to PC and consoles in late 2022

London, UK – 21 April, 2022. Global publisher Green Man Gaming Publishing is thrilled to announce a new global publishing deal with Indie developer Evil Twin Artworks to bring their exciting new comedic space combat adventure game The Galactic Junkers to PC and consoles in late 2022. Evil Twin Artworks originally planned a Kickstarter campaign to support the PC development and hopefully secure funding for a console release but Green Man Gaming Publishing stepped in with a deal to support the team with publishing, PR and marketing support for the launch of all platforms.

The Galactic Junkers will transport you to a far away galaxy to become the space captain you always wanted to be. The only problem is that your ship needs work, there’s a price on your head, and your crew are idiots! What could possibly go wrong!

“We are excited to be partnering with the talented team at Evil Twin Artworks to bring The Galactic Junkers to market and further bolster our publishing portfolio” commented Helen Churchill, SVP of Publishing at Green Man Gaming Publishing. “We believe that this title can be an indie hit not only on PC but across all platforms and we will utilise our vast publishing experience to get The Galactic Junkers in the hands of gamers across the world”.

“We are so excited to be collaborating with Green Man Gaming on Galactic Junkers. This was such a departure from our previous title we are really pleased to be able to get the game out to a larger audience.” Comment from James Carroll, Director at Evil Twin Artworks. “Green Man got it from the off and that was something that was important to us, there’s a lot of off kilter humour in The Galactic Junkers that we were pleased someone else was appreciating it outside of our little circle!”

About The Galactic Junkers

Being the captain of a spaceship can be hard, especially when there’s a price on your head. Bounty hunters, space pirates, and even the Galactic Union are trying to hunt you down. All that stands between you and oblivion is your wits, your crew, and your trusty ship.

The Galactic Junkers is a comedic action-adventure space combat game that puts you in the role of a space captain on the run. Your ship might be falling apart and your crew isn’t the best but with a little luck you can keep everything ship-shape. Upgrade your ship, hire new crew, steal supplies and equipment, and keep searching for the truth of why everyone wants you dead.

In the far future the Great Cataclysm saw Earth destroyed, seeing humanity spread throughout the Solar System. To survive we’ve become nomads, eking out a living on space stations that are falling apart and barely habitable asteroids. Humanity has lost hope but a few brave space captains are out there, trying to find a new future for us. You’re one of them, building a life full of adventure for you and your crew, with a full load of Space Munch, a moody computer and a barely functioning ship, what could possibly go wrong?

Features

  • Explore – Take a journey across the solar system exploring all nine planets and their neighbouring sectors. Discover mysterious asteroids, creaking space stations, abandoned shipwrecks, deadly pirates and much more.
  • Mine, Salvage, Steal, and Trade – Running a spaceship is never easy and there’s always bills to pay. Keep your bank balance looking healthy by mining asteroids, salvaging derelicts, and trading with disreputable characters. Maybe you’ll even partake in a little theft, but don’t worry – we don’t tell anyone.
  • Battle and Board Enemy Ships – Space is a deadly place so you’ll have to fight for your life. Set your crew to operate the guns and show those pesky pirates what you are made of! Board enemy ships to smash and grab essential resources or hack systems from the shadows.
  • Hire and Maintain your Crew – A happy ship needs a happy crew, so look after your band of useful idiots. Nurture their skills to keep everything running smoothly, or if you don’t like them, show them the airlock and hire new crew.
  • Buy, Upgrade, and Repair Ships – Maybe you need a little more juice in the engine department or your guns are falling short. Upgrade your ship to take control of the sector and make a name for yourself. Or if you prefer something a little fancier, trade in your ship for a better model. Just don’t forget your maintenance routines!
  • Protect You and Your Ship at all Costs – Try not to get yourself blown up, captured, or otherwise incapacitated. We’re counting on you to find the truth behind the bounty on your head and see if there’s a bigger destiny for you out there. Explore strange new worlds, meet weird new people, try dodgy food, and boldly fumble where no space captain has fumbled before, just don’t get your exhaust ports blown off!
  • The Galactic Junkers will be available for PC and console in late 2022. Fans can Wishlist the game on Steam now. For more information please visit Green Man Publishing website.

About Kainga: Seeds of Civilization

Kainga: Seeds of Civilization is a roguelite village-builder set in a world full of mystery and surprise. Taking on the role of the Thinker, the leader of the village, you will need to adapt to the procedurally generated environment and surroundings and make the right choices to allow your people and village to flourish. The Thinker is responsible for passing the players’ decisions and commands on to the people. Although the citizens are somewhat expendable, if the Thinker falls, you lose. Much like the king in chess, they’re weak and vulnerable and must be protected at all costs.

  • Train Units and Tame Beasts. Keep your village safe by researching technologies to equip your villagers with weapons to repeal attacks, or even use the beasts to your advantage by taming them and turning them on your rivals.
  • Acquire New Knowledge for Future Runs. Every end carries the seed of a new beginning, unlock new technologies, biomes and challenges to add further complexity to each run. Earn Karma to purchase advanced structure types and rescue thinkers to play with their leadership style and unique quirks.

  • Build Legendary Structures. From towering stone menhirs, to great halls and more. Construct and protect massive buildings using materials sourced from around the map.

Green Man Gaming Strikes Partnership Deal with Finstock Capital

By | Press Releases

Unique funding deal opens up new opportunities for global indie game developers

London, UK – 21st October, 2021. Green Man Gaming (GMG) and financial services firm Finstock Capital have struck a major partnership deal that will help GMG Publishing bring more Indie game titles to market.

While the global industry is projected to reach $180 billion in revenues this year, independent game studios can find it hard to secure the funding needed to bring their projects to market without the backing of a publisher.

But drawing from their direct experience of bringing over 30 video game titles to market, the award-winning retailer, distributor and publisher Green Man Gaming sought out an equity partner to help them revolutionize the funding pipeline, taking inspiration from the motion picture industry.

It’s hoped the deal will not only help independent developers partnered with Green Man Gaming but also encourage other investors to take the plunge in a booming industry which can deliver high rewards at every stage of the process from intellectual property to retail.

Finstock will co-invest with Green Man Gaming’s Publishing division to bring new intellectual property to market. GMG Publishing works with the creators to bring their games to market, by helping with distribution, sales, asset creation, tax and royalties.
Upcoming titles to be released under the Green Man Gaming Publishing label include

Paul Sulyok, Founder and CEO of Green Man Gaming says the partnership is welcome news for the industry, which experienced a surge during the global pandemic.

The company’s own research estimated UK gamers played over 84 million hours of video games during the 12 months of lockdown, averaging 4.5 hours per day (see Notes to Editors).

“FinStock has the experience and drive to help widen the funding pipeline in this thrilling and booming industry,” he said.

“It will help indie developers bring beautiful, immersive games to a global digital audience without having to surrender creative control to one of the big players in the market. Finstock’s financial firepower will help us ramp up the size and number of investments we make in games, which is a win for both creators and players.”
