GitHub founder Chris Wanstrath has launched Null Games, a new video games publisher.

The company intends to use Wanstrath's career experience to create a "more sustainable" game development environment.

He founded Github in 2007 and served as its CEO until Microsoft acquired the platform in 2018.

The first title Null Games will publish is Excellent Rectangle studio's Tape to Tape.

The rogue-lite hockey title is set to launch in April 2023 on Steam.

"At the end of the day, this is really all about the games," said Wanstrath.

"We've seen what the developer-unfriendly, crunch culture produces. It's time to see what happens when you treat developers and gamers with respect."
