Well this was unexpected: Hothead Games, the Vancouver studio behind Penny Arcade’s On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness adventure game and Deathspank, the new adventure game from Maniac Mansion and Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert, have announced they’ll be collaborating with indie devs to help bring their games to new platforms.
First out of the gates will be Jon Blow’s Braid, which was recently confirmed to be coming to the PC. Hothead says it will be both porting and exclusively publishing the new Mac version (presumably via the studio’s upstart games portal Greenhouse).
Also on the slate is a new Windows version of Twisted Pixel’s excellent recent Xbox Live Arcade action/puzzler and IGF finalist The Maw, which will include “special features to make the crowd-pleaser compatible with multiple as-of-yet-unannounced digital distribution platforms and services.”
