Paradox launches new publishing label Paradox Arc

Initiative to focus on "replayable games from smaller development teams"

Paradox Interactive has announced its new indie publishing branch, Paradox Arc.

Announcing the initiative on Twitter, it said the label will focus on "publishing efforts to bring deep, endless, and replayable games from smaller development teams to our existing audience and the world."

Paradox Arc has already unveiled its debut title, a deck-building game called Across the Obelisk. The title, developed by Dreamsite Games, was in Early Access on Steam for a year and is out now.

The publishing label will be headed by Sebastian Forsström, previously executive producer at Paradox Interactive.

He commented: "Our goal with Paradox Arc is to surprise players with games they might not have known they needed to play

"We’re publishing the kind of games that suddenly appear atop your ‘Most Played’ list. I can say from direct experience that Across the Obelisk fits this mold perfectly and I don’t think we could have asked for a better game for our premiere. I’m looking forward to sharing more Paradox Arc titles with everyone soon – and to inviting more developers to work with us.”
