Newsbrief: For its latest downloadable exclusive, Microsoft has partnered with Spanish indie studio Tequila Works to create DeadLight, a new horror-themed platformer for Xbox Live Arcade. The game, set to debut this summer, is the first to come from the Madrid-based Tequila Works, which has stayed relatively quiet since its founding in September 2009. According to its company website, the independent studio is home to 26 employees, many of whom have a background in film and traditional game development. In particular, a number of the team's key staff members hail from companies like Weta, Blizzard, MercurySteam, Sony Europe, and more. "Being published by Microsoft Studios, one of the world’s largest publishers, is a true reward for all the team [sic] hard work," said Tequila Works CEO Raul Rubio. "The opportunity to work with first-party publisher Microsoft Studios is a dream come true, and shows their commitment in the talent of small independent studios."
