Former NIS America employees form new publisher

Postby Shizuka » Mon May 06, 2013 6:04 pm

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.”

This news must be rather impressive if it caused Odinfan to reexist.

Hey Ubi, long time no see. Anyway, I do lurk occasionally, so it's not like I've left permanently. I still love the place, even if most of the few I remember have left. The site's grown quite a bit, so it's kind of hard to keep track of all of the new happenings.

No, but seriously, I think we're all curious.

There actually isn't really any more to it than what you see up there.

The three of them were super awesome team members, and they left on totally amicable terms. They just decided it was time to try something new and strike out on their own, and we're really excited and hopeful to see where they go from here.

So they left completely? That I was not expecting... Hope it isn't too lonely over there without them. :? :lol:
