Former Capcom executives Bill Gardner, Chris Jelinek, and Hanako Watanabe have announced the formation of their own independent game publishing firm, named OC-3 Entertainment.
Based in Santa Clara, California the company intends to bring independently developed games to a variety of gaming platforms, including PC, PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube and WiFi/mobile.
The company plans to seek out titles from small and mid-size developers and provide them with complete publishing functions to get them to market - including sales and distribution, marketing and public relations, and more operational elements like replication, warehousing and shipping.
"There are a lot of high quality games being left on the table because they aren't the next instalment of last year's licensed blockbuster," remarked Gardner, CEO and President of the new company. "O-3 Entertainment's approach to publishing will lead to more diverse and creative choices for gamers at retail.”
