Rift of the Necro Dancer

Brace Yourself Games - known for the rhythm music games such as Cadence of Hyrule and Crypt of the NecroDancer - has announced a new publishing label.

Brace Yourself Publishing wants to help smaller indie developers make their own dreams a reality. As the company has grown, it's gained capabilities, resources and knowledge, and it wants to now pass this on to other developers.

The same announcement even teases how the team will be publishing "great new titles" soon. Indie developers can head on over to Brace Yourself Games publishing page for more details.

At BYG, we aren’t looking to publish hundreds of games — we want to work with a small handful of games to which we give our full attention and care. It’s important to us that we only publish games that we love and believe in, with teams that we’re very proud to work with.

The types of games we’re looking for are:Hooky and unique in some way, Replayable and deep, In a genre that has a reasonably sized player base (we are not looking for hyper-niche games), Just plain fun!

But don’t worry — we’re not expecting you to have the game fully developed already. We certainly want to see something playable, but we don’t expect what you show us to be feature complete. Please fill in any gaps with documentation, explaining your vision for the game.

BYG most recently rolled out a new update for Crypt of the NecroDancer adding new characters and a co-op mode. It also announced a brand new rhythm game spinoff Rift of the NecroDancer. You can learn more about it in last week's story:

If we hear any Switch-related announcements from Brace Yourself Publishing, we'll be sure to let you know.
