RebelPlay seeking to offer alternative route to market for indies

Two former Sony development stalwarts, Leo Cubbin and Phil Gaskell, have joined forces to create a new digital publisher that offers indie teams an alternative route to market.

RebelPlay has already signed up two products – although no firm details have yet been announced. These projects are being aimed at either XBLA or PSN, or both. One will be released in December, the other next year.

The company has appointed digital investment bank IBIS Capital to advise on fundraising.

Cubbin played a key role in the evolution of the LittleBigPlanet franchise at Sony, whilst Gaskell was responsible for content on the PlayStation Network. Both operated out of the firm’s Liverpool studio.
