Established in 2012, as the European arm of Marvelous, the team also celebrates the 10-year milestone with the launch of a refreshed website which can be seen at www.marvelouseurope.com.
“We have significantly evolved in the last decade, establishing our own publishing identity and work culture and we wanted our website to reflect who we are right now.” said Marc Melton, Managing Director. “We’ve grown as a team and while we continue to publish and promote select Marvelous group titles, we’re also proud to be adding commercial value to other indie projects and support great teams, new and existing.”
Having revealed Mandragora, in partnership with Primal Game Studio, early this year and with additional games to be unveiled soon, the two new titles signed continue Marvelous Europe’ series of collaborations with development talent worldwide. In addition, the updated website will make it easier to reach out to the European publishing team regarding new partnerships.
“We wanted to make it as easy as possible to talk to us”, Sarah Burns, Head of Production and Operations adds. “We’re always open to seeing new titles and we pride ourselves on ensuring our partners have the creative freedom they need to build the games they’re imagining. In the case of RexLabo and Nao Games, it is incredible to see how small teams (or one-person development powerhouses!) can create such amazing titles and we’re excited to help them realise their vision.”
In Nova Antarctica, players must survive Earth’s harshest conditions on a devastatingly beautiful journey shaped by the choices they make, the paths they take, and the stories they weave with the mysterious animals they meet along the way.

“Over the last few years we’ve consistently supported talent in the industry through gaming incubators and accelerators including iGi in Japan, the Tentacle Zone in the UK, as well as GameBCN and Cinecittà Game Hub in Europe, and signing games created by participants in these projects feels like a natural step forward for us.” Marc Melton adds.
