11 bit studios has developed or published some bangers in the past few years, including games like Frostpunk, Children of Morta, Moonlighter, and This War of Mine. Both Frostpunk and Children of Morta made my list of games to play from 2019 and if I’d thought about it longer I’d probably have put Moonlighter on there as well.
The publisher isn’t resting on past successes, however, adding a pair of games to their coming lineup that should be highly anticipated. The first is a new RPG from Fool’s Theory, the Poland-based development studio that created Seven: The Days Long Gone. The second is a new IP from Digital Sun Games, creators of Moonlighter.
Details on those games will be coming out as they get closer to launch, but 11 bit studios will be investing more in these games than they have in past titles so expect them to be ambitious.
Here’s the press release:
11 bit studios Add Two Killer Titles to Their Publishing Lineup for 2020 and Beyond
11 bit studios team up once again with the developers of Moonlighter and take on an ambitious project from Fool’s Theory
“We’re still an extremely picky publisher. We’re probably even pickier than we were before if you can believe it! Our job is to hand-pick true gems and put our best efforts in with the development teams to help make them shine. We believe in boosting unique projects and using all the marketing magic we have to see them succeed. Right now, we’ve got two projects we’re really proud to have under our wing,” says Pawel Feldman, Publishing Director at 11 bit studios.
Details are sparse right now (gotta save all that marketing magic for later), but 11 bit can reveal the following:
- 11 bit studios is beyond thrilled to be teaming up with Poland-based Fool’s Theory for their latest project, codenamed Vitriol. The studio behind the artfully created stealth title, Seven: The Days Long Gone, is developing a game best described as a meaningful RPG. Jakub Rokosz, CEO at Fool’s Theory says, “We are truly happy to align with 11 bit studios. They’re known for their ability to find the unique spirit in a game and I believe our upcoming title fits impeccably with the type of projects they like to work on.”
- You might say 11 bit studios is ‘over the Moon(lighter)’ to be teaming up once more with the team at Digital Sun Games. There’s nothing to divulge just yet, but rest assured that the hard-working Spanish developer is putting the same care and attention into their new project (codename Foxhole) as they did with their critically acclaimed indie hit, Moonlighter, but this time it’s a totally new IP. “We badly wanted to work with these guys again. As a team, we feel 11 bit did a great job with Moonlighter and we both want to do even better things together. It’s really as simple as that,” says Javier Gimenez, CEO at Digital Sun Games.
Both projects — in various stages of development with further details coming in 2020 and beyond — are bigger in scope than anything 11 bit has previously published. With previous projects seeing such success, 11 bit studios are able to increase their investment in upcoming projects to the tune of over 1 million Euro per project.
