Super Rare Originals – SRG’s Original Publishing Label

Introducing Super Rare Originals, a new indie-first publishing label for consoles + PC 💙

Super Rare Games [SRG], one of the world’s leading physical games publishers, is incredibly proud to announce its brand new, all original publishing label; Super Rare Originals!

A whole host of incredible games have already signed up for SRG’s indie-first consoles and PC digital label. And we have the first five of them confirmed!

Super Rare Originals first five games are;

Grapple Dog

Grapple Dog is an exhilarating 2D pixel-art platformer from pixel art veteran Joseph Gribbin. Use your awesome grappling hook to clear tricky challenges as Pablo, the Grapple Dog! Sail across six colourful worlds with a crew of fearless adventurers to stop the robotic overlord Nul from destroying the world!”

[Grapple Dog is ready to wishlist now on on Steam. Other platforms TBA]

POST VOID

POST VOID is a challenging arcade-style first-person shooter with one objective: be fast. Move forward and keep your idol filled with liquid by getting kills. Each run will be a little bit different with procedurally generated levels. Keep your head full and reach the end; Kill what you can to see it mend; Get the high score or try again”.

[POST VOID is coming soon to consoles. Consoles are TBA]

The Gecko Gods

“Explore a mysterious island as a tiny lizard. Complete ancient puzzles, effortlessly climb cliffs and eat bugs as you make your way across an island civilization lost to time. Climb anything, solve ancient contraptions, and clamber through the crumbling ruins of a collapsed society – all as a little lizard on a mission to save their friend”.

[The Gecko Gods is available to wishlist now on Steam. Other platforms TBA]

Lone Ruin

From the creator of Hell is Other Demons comes Lone Ruin, a spell-based roguelike twin-stick shooter with tons of replayability. Play as an explorer who seeks a mysterious ancient power in an old ruin, built atop a source of magical goop used by olden mages to power and transform themselves. Dive deeper and deeper, battling your way through twisted creatures, utilising your very own magic abilities to ultimately reach the bottom of the Lone Ruin“.

[Lone Ruin is coming to Steam (wishlist not yet available). Other platforms TBA]

Completely Stretchy

Completely Stretchy is a short, first-person surreal and cartoony experience. Explore the vibrant Grombi Isles using your newfound floppy abilities such as your stretchy arm, sticky fingers, and more! Talk to the eccentric inhabitants and participate in their playful activities. You may even piece together the story of The Grombi Isles”.

As noted with all five games, the platforms each game will be available on is to be announced. Additionally, the dates that each game will be released vary. However, SRG will have more information when the respective release dates draw closer.

Also, these are only five games SRG are unveiling currently. My incredibly reliable source informs me there are plenty more yet to be revealed.

About Super Rare Games

SRG is, historically, best known for its line-up of physical Switch games. These games are released – roughly – every three weeks through its own online store. SRG’s mission statement has always been about supporting talented indie developers of all sizes. Hence, Super Rare Originals is the natural expansion of this statement.

SRG has worked with 100s of developers over the last four years. As such, the team want to support talented indie developers in the long term. And, hopefully, will help to start changing the industry to be more developer-focused. The team is taking an “indie first” approach, as it believes publishers should feel honoured to work with developers. Unfortunately, the power dynamic is more often than not the other way around currently.

Furthermore, SRG only signs games it is genuinely and personally passionate about. As with all aspects of their business, SRG’s main motivator is simply wanting to work on cool things with cool people! While the team hopes to change the lives of its developer friends, if a game were to release and break even, SRG would still consider this a success. It would be a success to have worked on something awesome and continue to support the game and its developer long-term.
