“With GameMaker, we have always prided ourselves on developing future game makers,” said YoYo Games GM James Cox.
“We are now excited to partner with and help the incredibly talented developers in our community to take their next step into the world of publishing and ultimately commercial success.
“We are blessed with a very creative community, who create highly innovative games. There is a real opportunity for us to act as a conduit to success for these developers, by providing them with our commercial expertise, advanced knowledge of the GameMaker platform and the investment clout that can take them to the next level and beyond.”
Publishing manager Chris Trewartha added: “We want to build a portfolio of games, made with GameMaker, that really stand out from the crowd through their concept, design, and mechanics.
“We will work with the developers to give them the support they need, enabling them to realize their full potential.”
