UBM Tech Game Network Unloads Stake in Indie Royale Bundle

January 15, 2013 -

We missed this when it was announced last week but it is pretty interesting news worth mentioning: IndieGames.com and Gamasutra parent the UBM Tech Game Network has transferred its 50% share in the Indie Royale game bundle to UK games investment firm Tenshi Ventures. Indie Royale started out as a joint venture between UBM Tech Game Network and digital distribution platform Desura. Desura will retain its 50 percent stake in the popular indie game bundle. Tenshi Ventures is operated by two veteran British developers: Ian Baverstock and Jonathan Newth.

"We're currently seeing a golden age of indie development; we've been developing games for over 20 years and are passionate about helping indie developers reach a bigger audience and get better recognition & reward for their games," said Ian Baverstock last week. "Getting involved with Indie Royale is a great way to do that."

"It's great to have the team from Tenshi Ventures on board," said Desure founder Scott Reismanis. "Their experience and contacts in the industry will be invaluable in helping us grow the bundle for all the indie partners we work with."
