Does a company with deep success in distributing indie game titles have something unique to offer to indie filmmakers? Devolver co-founder Mike Wilson thinks so.
If you’ve heard of Devolver Digital, you’re probably familiar with their support and release of last year’s Hotline Miami, the blood-soaked, neon-drenched top-down action game from Dennaton that made a lot of best-of lists. Devolver co-founder as well as game and film industry vet Mike Wilson wants to make Devolver known not only for their support of indie games, but indie film as well, launching Devolver Digital Films this week at South by Southwest.
There’s no shortage of emerging alternative distributor models… but my gut tells me that Devolver just may find a niche that really benefits from their time in the gaming trenches.
