Award-winning development studio, Lichthund (@LichthundStudio), has teamed up with Team17 Digital (@Team17) for its next game. The developer is known for its quirky and fresh game experiences, such as the 2016 hit, Lichtspeer, a fast-paced action game where players throw lightspears at enemies.

Established in 2014 as a two-person venture in Warsaw, Poland, Lichthund swiftly transformed into an acclaimed studio known for blending a bold creative vision with a venturesome spirit. The studio’s debut game, Lichtspeer, garnered success upon its release in 2016 for PC and PS4, leading to subsequent console adaptations and a mobile version in the ensuing years.

The new game, which is still under wraps, will be an original IP that reflects both studios' unique styles. It will be published by Team17 Digital and released for PC and consoles.

Michael Pattison, CEO, Team17 Digital, said: “I and the rest of Team17 Digital are excited to be working with Lichthund on their next title, which promises to be as unique as their debut release. The partnership underlines our continued mission to help exceptional developers deliver the best and most eclectic indie games on the planet, and will strengthen our portfolio of nearly 150 games.”

Rafal Zaremba, CEO, Lichthund, said: “We are incredibly excited about our collaboration with Team17 on one of our projects. Partnering with a publisher that shares our values and creative vision was very important to us. Together, we are committed to raising the bar in terms of production values and creating a game that will captivate and immerse players in a new and exciting experience. Having poured our hearts and souls into the development process, we can’t wait to talk more about the game.”
