Video game industry veterans Ellen Fuog and Jeff Hill have created publishing venture Detn8 Games Ltd., which will focus on games for console and handheld hardware. The company has acquired all-platform licensee status with Nintendo and SCEA and is scheduled to publish its first release in June, 2007.
Detn8's two principals have a combined 51 years in the video game industry. "We've been around since the Mattel Intellivision days and each of us has owned and operated game-related companies in the past," comments Ms. Fuog, the company's president. "We've worked for and with many game publishers. It's just time to take this step into publishing on our own."
