Tripwire Presents Partners with The Powell Group as Official Sponsor of IndieGameBusiness

Publisher’s Sponsorship Allows Organization to Expand its Offerings of Free Resources and Education to Independent Game Developers.    

ROSWELL, Ga. – September 12, 2022 – Tripwire Presents, the publishing division of Tripwire Interactive that focuses on releasing great games from other independent studios, including Chivalry 2, Espire 1: VR Operative, Espire 2, DECEIVE INC. and Road Redemption, announced today that they have partnered with The Powell Group as the official Diamond Sponsor for IndieGameBusiness (IGB). IGB is an organization which provides free resources and education to indie game developers in the form of virtual conferences, podcasts, white papers, and an active discord server. Tripwire’s sponsorship allows IGB to expand its content offerings to include online classes and to also pay a stipend to speakers presenting at the 2022 virtual conferences.

This sponsorship also allows IGB to bring on part-time program director, Heather Chandler, formerly Sr. Producer at Epic Games, to manage the content for the conferences, podcasts, newsletters, classes, and other offerings. The next all-virtual conference will feature a wide array of business, marketing, and licensing sessions with representatives from developers, publishers, investors, marketing firms and more.

“Tripwire Presents has really stepped up and their support is allowing us to do many of the things I had envisioned for IndieGameBusiness from the start,” says Jay Powell, CEO of The Powell Group and Founder of IGB. “This partnership allows us to grow that vision dramatically for the first time and help support more indie developers with their dream of making and releasing a game.”

The IGB conference will run online from Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 12:00 AM EDT until Thursday, Sept. 22 at 11:30 PM EDT. Registration, ticketing and additional information can be found here.

About Tripwire Interactive

The studio’s latest project, Maneater, breaks new ground in the popular action RPG genre and finds players taking on the role of a deadly shark with the uncanny ability to evolve as it feeds.

Since then, Tripwire Interactive has expanded its business with the publishing division, Tripwire Presents, turning its experience and resources to include publishing titles spanning multiple platforms and genres from other talented independent studios. Tripwire Presents aims to help like-minded independent studios bring their titles to market, including Chivalry 2 developed by Torn Banner Studios, Espire 1: VR Operative and Espire 2 developed by Digital Lode, DECEIVE INC. developed by Sweet Bandits Studios and Road Redemption developed by EQ Games and Pixel Dash Studios.
