Former NIS America employees form new publisher

LA-based Acttil focused on publishing, marketing, and localization.

Former NIS America employees Jack Niida, Hiroko Kanazashi, and Nao Miyazawa have founded Acttil, a new independent game and digital contents publisher based in Los Angeles, California. 

The studio promises to bring “fun, creative games and digital contents such as eBooks” from around the world to PC, consoles, web, and mobile platforms, with a focus on products that are adventurous, unique, and sure to make you smile.

Acttil will help publish and provide “marketing expertise, analytics, monetization strategies, game feedback, and promotional / sales plans” to independent developers, and provide localization services, as well.

“We are optimistic with the current digital content environment. It is quite promising for independent developers and we would love to work closely with them and help achieve their goals,” said founding member Jack Niida.

The company name is based on its six core values, “acceptance, creativity, teamwork, trust, innovation, and love.”
