Distribution expert reveals a fresh publishing brand and partners with the creators of Monument Valley.
French independent distribution expert and publisher Plug In Digital is proud to announce a new flexible publishing effort called PID Publishing.
This new label is equally open to global multiplatform deals for unreleased projects and to co-publishing agreements to port existing games to new platforms.
Nurtured by recent collaborations with the teams behind Ghost of a Tale, Paper Beast or Unmemory, PID Publishing’s portfolio also proudly welcomes Alba: A Wildlife Adventure, a new delightful game envisioned by ustwo games, creators of the Monument Valley series.
This partnership is a perfect illustration of one way PID Publishing intends to work, by offering porting and publishing support on PC/consoles to a renowned studio willing to preserve its self-publishing autonomy on the mobile space. More information about Alba: a Wildlife Adventure will be revealed soon by ustwo games.
With this new brand announcement, Plug In Digital strengthens its position in the games publishing space. Complementary to Dear Villagers, a publishing label successfully launched in early 2019 with a strict focus on PC and consoles, PID Publishing will piece together a more flexible line-up on all platforms, including upcoming PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S next-generation consoles.
Francis Ingrand, CEO and founder of Plug In Digital: “Launching a new publishing label is a key step in our growth strategy. The same way we went from a small business development agency to a leading distributor, we are looking to patiently hone our skills, investments, and successes as a publisher. This second brand allows us to work in a more flexible way with selected partner studios that are creating very different types of games.”
Primarily handled by a team of 6 people, it will naturally benefit from expert support by the whole Plug In Digital staff, now composed of 35+ employees located in Montpellier, Paris and also Shanghai, thanks to the opening of a dedicated Chinese division last year.
PiD Publishing will have an intense end of the year with the upcoming release of Iris and the Giant and Alt-Frequencies on Nintendo Switch and many new games announcements for 2021.
