Today, thanks to an investment from Riot Games’ Underrepresented Founder’s Fund, indie darlings The MIX announced that they have opened a publishing arm aimed at indie developers working on fresh and interesting neo retro games, as well as new kinds of games that deliver full multiplatform experiences. The MIX will offer development, financial, manufacturing, distribution, and marketing support.
Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the MIX is known for its indie-focused events at major gaming shows such as Gamescom, PAX, and E3. For the past decade, they have provided small developers a deservedly equal platform at the major shows, because developers create amazing games at vastly varying budget levels.
They created The MIX to provide indies with a platform for creating awareness and increasing discoverability. At shows like GDC, E3, PAX, and Gamescom, big-budgeted AAA games normally consume all the buzz, but The MIX has been designed to give indie games a deservedly equal platform because developers create amazing games at vastly varying budget levels.
They continually pursue new opportunities to help build visibility for great games and experiences. With this in mind, they are proud to announce The MIX Games expansion. The MIX Games will publish fresh and interesting neo retro games along with new kinds of games in the future, delivering full multiplatform experiences through development, financial, manufacturing, distribution, and marketing support. The MIX Games releases will feature limited-edition hardware systems and collectibles. Gameplay in MIX Games releases deliver classic mechanics to today’s gamers in fresh new ways, with new genres and original titles in the future.
Riot Games’ Underrepresented Founder’s Fund has contributed considerably to establishing this new business expansion and the vision for The MIX Games, including advising, resources, and more. Riot’s commitment to investments and startup programs aligns with our core beliefs.
