“Back in March we laid out a very clear strategy: we want ambitious founders to join us and help bring the company to a new level, together. This included several pillars for our M&A strategy, 3 of which are: a complimentary publishing label, an in-house service provider, and strategic expansion into emerging regions such as South America. With Versus Evil and Red Cerberus we achieve these 3 strategic goals. Steve Escalante is an industry veteran and built this great business, and we’re here to help take it to the next level. Welcome to the orange family!”

“The joining of tinyBuild couldn’t have come at a better time. By infusing capital and investing in more titles, I am very excited about the opportunities that will open up for Versus Evil as a publisher.
