Fire Fu, Super Arc Light and Apestorm will release on iOS and Android during Q1 2016

All 4 Games has revealed its first three game releases.

The publisher was launched as an offshoot of national broadcaster Channel 4 last year, and spent successive months touring the UK in search of prospective developers to support.

Among its launch line-up are three iOS and Android titles, set for release in the first quarter of 2016.

Fire Fu (pictured) is an arcade game from RetroFist, the indie formed by former VooFoo Studios co-founder John Kearney.

Meanwhile, Super Arc Light is a radial shooter with a one-button control scheme. Glasgow-based outlet No Code Studios is behind the title, including former developers on Alien: Isolation.

The last game, Apestorm: Full Bananas, adopts a 2D side-scrolling format to challenge players to bomb targets in steampunk world. It’s the first release from Finnish dev Snowhound.

“We’re absolutely delighted to be announcing our first batch of published games, as well as the exciting partnerships we’ve built in our first few months of operation,” said Colin Macdonald, Channel 4’s games commissioning editor and head of All 4 Games.

“We’re proud to be working alongside some of the finest mobile games development teams within the UK and Europe, and can’t wait to give these talented teams the platform that they deserve.”
