Frontier Developments plc today debuted the first two titles from Frontier Foundry, its new games label championing quality studios from around the world. They are time-twisting turn-based combat strategy shooter Lemnis Gate, and physics-based co-op platformer Struggling. In both of these award-winning games, innovative gameplay sits at the heart of the development process.
Frontier Foundry’s mission is simple: expand the Company’s excellent game portfolio by partnering with exciting developers. With their heritage as a developer, combined with a wealth of publishing experience, Frontier is perfectly placed to offer third-party studios expertise and guidance throughout the development cycle, delivering the vision its creators intended. And Frontier Foundry’s first two games represent radically new and different propositions indeed.
Struggling is Montreal studio Chasing Rats Games’ opera prima, putting players in the unsightly skin of a lovable monstrosity on a bizarre and outrageous adventure. Struggling is available now for Steam and Nintendo Switch.
Lemnis Gate, from fellow Montreal studio Ratloop Games Canada, subverts the popular first-person-shootenr genre to create a brain-bending combat strategy where past, present, and future collide. Here, players harness the power of time to out-think and outwit their adversaries in this turn-based time-loop.
Five third-party games were signed to Frontier Foundry during the Company’s last financial year (the 12 months to 31 May 2020), including Lemnis Gate, Struggling and the previously announced and currently in development title by Surviving Mars developer Haemimont Games.
Our journey into the world of self-publishing has always been underpinned by our passion to make memorable games that create legacies and break down boundaries. We are one of the only developer-led publishers which means we are in a great position to work with excellent external partners to help them make great games. With Frontier Foundry our aim is to build upon our experience working with and building wonderful communities around a diverse catalogue of internally developed games, and bring that experience to those external development partnerships.David Braben, Founder and CEO of Frontier.
Frontier Foundry is symbolic of Frontier’s continued growth and evolution. With more partners to be announced soon, this new games label will continue to promote genre-defining games for years to come.
