Developer Nomad Games is repositioning itself as a specialist indie publisher.
The firm joins a raft of other indie publishers such as Mastertronic, Team 17, 505 Games, Green Man Loaded, Devolver Digital, Paradox Interactive and more. But what separates Nomad is that the firm wants to focus on digital versions of table-top games – such as its recently launched Talisman, which is a Games Workshop-licensed title for PC and tablets.
Nomad – which will continue to create its own titles – wants to offer developers PR, marketing QA and localisation services.
Nomad Games is, itself, a niche developer which means we fully understand the opportunities – but also the pitfalls – of self publishing,” said co-founder Don Whiteford.
However, many of us also boast many years of working for, or with, major international multi-format games companies, such as Acclaim, Psygnosis, Rage Software and THQ. So we’re confident that our wealth of experience at both ends of the publishing spectrum will prove invaluable to third-party studios.
We’re delighted with the success we’ve enjoyed with Talisman, not only in terms of the sales we’ve achieved across PC, Android and iOS, but with the huge international community we’ve built for what is a very niche table-top title.
We’re looking forward to helping other indie studios with products in the board, card and dice game genre achieve similar results.”
