Here at GCP we are big fans of the Square Enix Collective, you may have noticed how much we have covered their releases this year, they have helped bring some truly great Indy titles to the masses, and we thought we would take a look at what they have achieved this year.
"Square Enix Collective has been created to act as a service provider for indie developers, either through helping to build community, or with support for releasing games. Regardless of which services we work with you on, you will always retain your own IP, as well as creative control over your projects – and at each stage it’s up to you if you want to continue to work with us in the future."
