Publisher Focus Home Interactive and Paris-based developer Douze-Dixiemes have announced a partnership for an “upcoming indie title.”

Douze-Dixiemes was formed in 2017 by seven people from a range of creative backgrounds including animation and video games. It aims to create “unique, touching, and meaningful gaming experiences where narration meets art to deliver truly memorable journeys.”

The French studio is currently working on narrative 3D game Shady Part of Me, which is due out for PC and Mac via Steam “hopefully in 2020.” Focus Home Interactive did not state whether or not this is the “upcoming indie title” it will publish. The press release does state, however, that Douze-Dixiemes is “currently working on its first game.”

“As a young studio we are very proud to enter a partnership with Focus!” said Douze-Dixiemes president and co-founder George Herrmann in a press release. “Every step of the way has proven their dedication to creativity even if it brings the need for innovation. As a team at Douze-Dixiemes, our core value resides in the freedom to explore new visuals and narratives. This is precisely what we found with Focus.”

Focus Home Interactive COO John Bert added, “Supporting the French indie game development scene has long been a part of the Focus DNA, and is an important aspect of our strategy. So it’s with great pleasure that we announce this new partnership. It was immediately apparent that the Douze-Dixièmes team shares our values, and we are more than excited to start a new adventure with such a talented team.”
