Wednesday, May 17, 2017 , Manchester, UK. - Merge Games Ltd. is pleased to announce the appointment of Advantage Distribution to handle its releases with independent retailers.

Following its 2016 move into the console market, Merge Games has now expanded its portfolio further and can boast an impressive trio of summer retail titles. Merge Games has chosen to partner with Advantage Distribution to exclusively offer its titles to independent retail.

Merge Games’ Managing Director, Luke Keighran, commented, “This summer will be very important for Merge Games as we have three absolute crackers landing in June and July. PlayStation4 gamers can look forward to Unbox; A colourful, open-world platformer with both single player and four player gameplay. We’ve also got Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles coming for PS4 too. Yonder is a bit special, a kind of Animal Crossing meets Zelda with a pinch of Harvest Moon - it’s very, very pretty. Finally, we’ve got our first Nintendo Switch title too. This one needs no introduction… I’ll just say The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ and leave it there.”

Advantage Distribution, General Manager, Max Butler added,” We are delighted to be working with Merge Games having previously worked with Luke and the team back in 2012. We have always been impressed with their energy and ability to identify and nurture independent brands and bring this content to the wider Physical market. The Merge Games product portfolio is a perfect compliment to our range offering and we look forward to distributing this in the UK”.
