Seven titles already on Humble's slate

Humble Bundle, the team behind the bundle of the same name and the Humble Store, have announced that they'll be moving into multi-platform publishing, which will allow certain developers to not only sell their games via Humble Bundle, but also be funded and published by them, too.

Games published by the company will bear the label "presented by Humble Bundle" and the plan is to publish titles on multiple platforms, although the seven games signed so far — A Hat In Time, HackyZack, Ikenfell, Keyboard Sports, No Truce with the Furis, Scorn and Staxel — are all heading to PC, Mac and Linux first with multiplatform releases to come later.

John Poison, Humble's publishing lead, said in a statement: "Since Humble's launch in 2010, we have earned the trust of over 10m customers across our products," he said. "In a time when it's harder than ever for games to find their audience, publishing feels like the next logical step in the services that we can offer to our developer partners."

Humble are currently looking for new developers and games to work with.
