https://www.playtonicgames.com/introducing-playtonic-friends-faqs/

From the FAQ page:

WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO BECOME A PUBLISHER?

You wouldn’t believe the amount of hidden gems out there that are left unearthed! We’re making it our mission to bring interesting games that tickle our fancy to the surface and get the love and attention they deserve. We’ve been digging around and speaking with developers from all over the world and there’s a massive wad of fantastic projects brimming with potential.

We’re keen to help talented studios focus on game development, while our newly formed publishing team handle the other bits. Don’t worry, all our devs (like Steve, Kev, Daley, et al) are still working on… whoops, almost had us there!

Stay tuned for future announcements by following Playtonic Friends on Twitter.

ARE YOU STILL MAKING GAMES? WE NEED MORE YOOKA-LAYLEE! 

Of course we are! There are many more adventures on the way for Yooka-Laylee and friends. We’ve also heard the cries from our community about doubling down on Vendi… we know you love her really!

We’ve got nowt to reveal just yet, though we can say there are multiple things in the works…

WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO ANNOUNCE THE GAMES YOU’RE PUBLISHING? 

Good things come to those who wait! We have an exciting year ahead of us.

Follow us on our brand-spanking-new Playtonic Friends Twitter to stay up to date on what we’re publishing and pushing out into the world! There will be the odd teasing tweet, chances to win stuff, and lots more!

 

WHAT TYPE OF GAMES WILL YOU BE PUBLISHING?  

We’re not planning on pigeon-holing ourselves into one genre or style, so you lot are going to have an exciting mixed bag to play with! It’ll be like the good old days of pick-n-mix at the cinema, but with less calories.

 

WHAT’S WITH THE NEW LOGO?

We thought now would be a great time for a new lick of paint. Playtonic is evolving and so is our branding! We’re still the same Playtonic you know and love, we’ve just expanded to include Playtonic Friends.

Besides, you know, we wanted to work on more apparel opportunities…

SO, YOU SAID YOU’RE EVOLVING… DOES THIS MEAN THERE WILL BE FUTURE JOB OPPORTUNITIES? 

Little chancer, aren’t ya?! We will indeed be on the lookout for more talented folk to join our roster, keep your eye on our Twitter and jobs section on our website to stay in the loop.

Speaking of the website, we’re planning on updating that too, so stay tuned for all of that lovely stuff.

 

HAS PLAYTONIC BEEN BOUGHT BY ANOTHER COMPANY? 

No. We’re waiting for the value of T.W.I.T coin to be inflated. (Look, a topical joke!)

 

HEY, I’M A DEVELOPER LOOKING FOR A PUBLISHER. WHERE CAN I INTRODUCE MYSELF?

We’d love to hear from you! Why not drop us a line here: bizdev@playtonicgames.com

Maybe one day we'll get a spiritual successor to Diddy Kong Racing with Playtonic characters



They already announced partneships with 3 indie studios: Fabraz (From the Slime-San franchise), Okidokico (That made Ok Golf for smartphones) and Awe Interactive (That made BPM: Bullets per Minute on Steam) and are currently in negotioation with other partners.

Someday you will die somehow 

And something's gonna steal your carbon 

It seems like Playtonic Friends is playing a game similar to Yacht Club Games. Wouldn't be surprised if these two become reknown studios in the future landscape of indies
