Worms creator Team 17 is to return to third-party publishing after nearly twenty years.

The first title from the new initiative will be Light from Brighton's indie team Just A Pixel, which is currently being funded by Team 17 and going through Steam's Greenlight process.

"Team 17 has an incredible community running into many millions that we can cross-promote within and raise awareness for new IPs and specifically indie games, which are very close to our hearts and something we stand up for," said the company in a statement.

"Team 17 is home to an awesome digital publishing team who have topped every digital chart from PC, console and mobile over the last couple of years. Most importantly, Team 17 make games as well and know first-hand just what it takes to make a game and take it to market correctly across all platforms."

Team 17 intends to tailor publishing packages and will offer funding, marketing, cross-promotion and localisation.

Good news for us indie developers, certainly we could use some publishing deals since self publishing is really the hardest thing in all the game dev process.

I've been saying this for some time and I'm glad to see a big name step up.

Indies don't need big pushy publishers wading in and taking over. What they need is some (ok, a lot) of marketing help and perhaps some words of wisdom on presentation. Sounds like this is what's on offer at last. Well done!
