In an interview with GamesIndustry.biz, the Dontnod studio, known for its interactive dramas like Life is Strange and Tell Me Why. He explained why the studio decided to self-publish more games. It starts with Twin Mirror, the studio’s first self-released game.
Dontnod aims to release up to six new games
“For us, it’s not about Life is Strange or Tell Me Why or Vampyr or Remember Me, although we are very proud of all of these games,” says CEO Oskar Guilbert. “What is important to us is the Dontnod brand. This is what we want to promote in the future. Dontnod is currently working on six games, one of which is a partnership with Focus Home Interactive and another is a partnership with an unknown publisher. The remaining four titles are self-published.
Dontnod is opening a new studio in Montreal, which is part of the company’s goal to grow slowly and steadily to support multiple projects. These upcoming games can be standalone titles or they can be made up of different episodes, depending on which approach Dontnod thinks is best.
Anyway, we are happy that this study continues to develop. They have great stories to tell and they know how to tell them very well.
