Making a statement as the newest publisher on the block, Modern Wolf is excited to not only unveil its debut roster of five incredibly talented indie developers and their upcoming titles, but also establish its commitment to ethical game development practices. From zero tolerance on crunch, to an acute sensitivity to mental health wellbeing, this means taking an active role in holding itself and its development partners to the highest standards possible.
As a publisher, Modern Wolf seeks to offer the very best in strategy and strategy-adjacent indie games. Whether it’s tactics and sim titles, or a platformer that requires strategic thinking thanks to more… unconventional movement mechanics, Modern Wolf prides itself on establishing long-term partnerships with incredibly talented indie developers, from countries that are largely underrepresented in this industry like Indonesia.
