Super Rare Games releases physical Switch games every three weeks, all in an effort to further its mission of supporting talented independent developers of all sizes. The team sees this new Super Rare Originals digital independent publishing imprint as an extension of that, teasing even more games that they’re excited to announce in the future.

“Having worked with hundreds of developers over the last four years, we want to support talented indie developers for the long haul and hopefully help start to change the industry to become more developer-centric,” says Super Rare Originals. “We’re taking an ‘indie first’ approach, as we believe publishers should feel honored to work with developers, rather than the power dynamic being the other easy one, as is often the case.

“We see ourselves as ‘indie’s best friend,’ supporting all different scales of indie developers in every way, from our physical releases of established indie treasures and hidden gems, to our original publishing of games from new and veteran developers.”
