Retrovibe is a brand new publisher focusing on indie games with a new Retro twist. Retrovibe has announced five titles, as their leading lineup for 2021/2022: Project Warlock II, Janosik 2, and B.I.O.T.A., The Looter, and Shardpunk: Verminfall. These games are set to be released on PC and console with release dates to be announced.
The new publisher has been founded by Michal Kiciński (co-founder of CD Projekt), Michał Affelski, and Krzysztof Papliński (co-founders of indie publisher Gamingcompany) with the former backing the project and the latter two running the show.
Co-Founder Michal Kiciński had this to say:
“I’ve known the Gamingcompany guys for years and I like their approach to the job. I like retro games, the kind I played when I was a teenager. These are relatively small projects filled with love and passion – and that struck a chord with me.”
Already launched titles Project Warlock and Janosik have joined the Retrovibe banner. Janosik is currently available for free on Steam and GOG.
