GameSpy Technology, a division of IGN Entertainment, Inc., is proud to announce that development teams Primer Labs and Team2Bit have joined the current semester of the Indie Open House initiative to further develop their titles while working in a productive environment surrounded by like-minded indie teams. Primer Labs is further developing Code Hero, an incredible title that teaches gamers how to make their own games while playing the game. By being part of the Indie Open House, the teams now have access to GameSpy Technology and IGN Entertainment's resources including free office space, technology, peer support and consultation. GameSpy Technology is proud to offer the Indie Open House initiative, empowering talented indie developers with resources to help them realize their dream projects and bring them to fruition.

Team2Bit founders and brothers Matt and Jake Lewandowski are currently developing Fist Puncher, a retro-styled, side-scrolling beat 'em up with RPG elements and plenty of button mashing goodness. You may recognize the Lewandowski brothers as the winners of IGN's 'The Next Game Boss' reality show with their charming game Washington's Wig.

"Indie Open House has proven to be a great, supportive environment for talented indie developers to learn from each other while working on their dream projects," said Drew Curby, Senior Director, GameSpy Technology. "Working with developers like Primer Labs and Team2Bit has also helped us to better adapt our tools and services to the needs to today's multi-platform development needs."
Since 2010, the Indie Open House project has helped independent developers get their projects off the ground. The current group of indie teams includes Cryptic Sea, Wolfire, Interabang and Misfits Attic, as well as the new members, Primer Labs and Team2Bit. Indie Open House is strictly a support and residency program, meaning IGN maintains no interest in owning any content or binding participating teams to prohibitive contracts.
Misfits Attic will soon be entering their beta stage for their upcoming title, A Virus Named TOM, an infectious action-puzzler. The team is currently taking preorders for their title, and with each preorder, customers will have access to DRM-free downloads of their newest game beta for Windows PC.
