Sony Music Entertainment establishes Unties game publishing label

Starting lineup: Tiny Metal, Last Standard, Merkava Avalanche, and Deemo Reborn.


Sony Music Entertainment has announced the establishment of a new game publishing label called Unties.

Here’s an overview of the label, via Sony Music Entertainment:

With the growth of game development environments, high quality game development has become possible even in small scale environments, and the evolution of digital publishing has made it easier to distribute developed titles to users worldwide. On the other hand, with a mixed bag of titles overflowing the market, there are also situations where interesting titles are buried without being noticed.

At Unties, we dig up the masterpieces buried in those situations, and support them so that more users notice and pick them up. We spread information about excellent games and sell titles for multiple platforms.

The name “Unties” comes from the thought “to unleash the excellent talents of unique game creators all over the world” and “setting creators free from the various shackles of game publishing, named from the intention of realizing publishing that is freedom of production without restraints.”

Unties has announced four titles it plans to publish:
