Two indie video game development companies based in Prince Edward Island have signed exclusive publishing deals with Toronto-based game publisher, Throwback Entertainment.

Throwback announced last month that it had signed the deals to publish Rabbit Hole Studios’ game The Lost Gardens, and Queen Bee Games’ Onion Force.

Created by the acquisition of Acclaim Entertainment in 2006, Throwback develops, creates, and publishes immersive and interactive gaming titles, developing its own content and publishing the intellectual property of other studios.

In one statement, the publisher said it was publishing Onion Force in association with Innovation PEI, and that it is the first title in a new joint-effort to increase exposure of the gaming industry within Canada and P.E.I.

Throwback signed a publishing deal with Queen Bee Games to distribute Onion Force on the App Store, Google Play and also on Steam, a digital distribution platform for independent video games.
