From Press Release:
UK, 27th February 2019 – Team17, a global games label, creative partner and developer of independent, premium video games today announced the million plus selling game Golf With Your Friends has joined Team17’s games label. The partnership sees Team17 become involved, as a full creative partner in all aspects of development as well as publishing on their games label.
Team17’s award winning development resources have been utilized by many of Team17’s partners over previous years, noticeably last year they helped co-create Overcooked 2. This however is the first time Team17 have become involved in the co-development of a game which didn’t originally launch on their label.
Debbie Bestwick, MBE, CEO of Team17 said, “What Blacklight have achieved so far is a great accomplishment for such a small studio. By opening up Team17’s development resources to them, along with our franchise expertise, we look forward to growing and building the game into a franchise that can be enjoyed by many millions more across many platforms in the future. Golf With Your Friends is a game our internal development studio highlighted they would like to become involved with, I’m excited to see what this partnership brings. Like Worms and Overcooked, Golf With Your Friends is a game best played multiplayer. It’s a unique situation in terms of sharing our resources with a game that is already launched in Early Access, but we are seeing more of these opportunities where we can help studios like Blacklight realise their ambitions.”
“As a small studio we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work with such an incredible partner like Team17, with their vast history and experience. We always envisaged a much bigger universe for the game, and Team17’s resources and expertise will allow us to reach the true potential for Golf With Your Friends. This is great news for our community and players who have supported us over the past few years and we at Blacklight Interactive are excited to be a part of this adventure with Team17 by our side,” added Kailan Clark, CEO of Blacklight Interactive.
