The team behind SUPERHOT are now helping to fund other indie games

By - | Views: 4,662

A nice story for a Friday morning as the SUPERHOT team have announced SUPERHOT PRESENTS, a fund to help other indie game developers who don't want or need a publisher.

SUPERHOT PRESENTS, a name they jokingly stole from Double Fine Productions (Double Fine Presents) aims to work with developers who need some "finishing (or starting) funds" and they will give some mentoring and advice. They said they just want to "enable a few more properly independent studios exist in the world" which is rather admirable.

With thousands of games releasing every year, times are tough for all developers and it's great to see those more successful reach out and help others. Their ending note was sweet:

We’re still a game development company, we’re working hard on our own games, we just think putting some money back into the industry so more cool things can be made is a nice idea.

The first titles announced are Knuckle Sandwich and The Haunted Island, a Frog Detective Game. If we hear any news about them coming to Linux, we will let you know.

You can see all the details here, just scroll down a bit.

After 3 years they haven’t been able to add key binding options to their game and they think they can give advice to other developers? Sigh…
