Shiro Games, the France-based developer of Northgard and Evoland, has launched a new publishing label called Shiro Unlimited.
The company will work with small devs on bringing “new indie titles to life.” Shiro Unlimited will offer funding, publishing expertise, as well as development and marketing support.
The first title published by Shiro Unlimited will be the narrative title Opportunity by Dimanche Corp. The game is described as “driven by exploration and poetry, where players will experience the beauty and loneliness of space conquest.”
“Shiro Unlimited will benefit from the experience and skills Shiro has developed over the last 10 years, with the objective of carefully curating and publishing titles that Shiro themselves could have made and the clear goal of preserving the vision of their developers, whilst helping smaller teams achieve the best possible version of their projects,” the announcement on the website reads. “With this in mind, all games published by Shiro Unlimited will aim to offer a new type of experience in their specific genre or innovation in fields like art direction, gameplay and systems, genre crossovers and more.”
