Team17 has today announced its partnership with Minsk based indie developer Weappy Studios. Together they will be releasing the criminally good This is the Police on PC and other platforms.
Ilya Yanovich, Co-Founder at Weappy Studio, said:
“We hope our Kickstarter backers will join us in celebrating our new partnership with Team17. Thanks to Team17’s Indie Label we can focus on developing the game that stays true to both our and our backer’s vision of the project; whilst knowing that the marketing, PR and community interaction will be handled with the same love and attention. Having seen what Team17 have already done for previous crowdfunded titles like The Escapists, Beyond Eyes and Sheltered they were an obvious partner.”
Debbie Bestwick, Team17’s Managing Director added:
“As soon as I saw This is the Police on Kickstarter, I was a fan. It’s a fantastic looking game and the team at Weappy are obviously very talented. It’s a pleasure to welcome them to our growing Indie Label and we’re excited to help them realize their vision.”
This is the Police is a strategy/adventure game about power and corruption, duty and choice.
As Weappy Studio noted, it has declined to take any additional development funding from Team17 so please support This is the Police by checking out Weappy’s Kickstarter campaign.
The team aims to raise $25K in total, and has 8 more days to achieve that goal.
Team17 will provide funding for Marketing, PR, community engagement and additional non-development costs.
