While the idea of independent games having publishers may sound a bit silly on the face of it, many developers will partner with someone — a Curve Digital
or Team 17
for example — so that these small developers can focus on what they do best: developing! That's the case for Sketchbook Games who have teamed up with Modus Games for their debut title Lost Words: Beyond the Page
. Modus Games are pretty new to this themselves with only one previous release (the recently-released Ninjin: Clash of Carrots
) but they do have more games on the horizon, including Moondrop Studios' Degrees of Separation
and Override: Mech City Brawl
from The Balance Inc. Modus Games
will help to bring Lost Words: Beyond the Page
to Xbox One in 2019.
We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the Lost Words: Beyond the Page achievements.
