LA-based Acttil focused on publishing, marketing, and localization.

Former NIS America employees Jack Niida, Hiroko Kanazashi, and Nao Miyazawa have founded Acttil, a new independent game and digital contents publisher based in Los Angeles, California. 

The studio promises to bring “fun, creative games and digital contents such as eBooks” from around the world to PC, consoles, web, and mobile platforms, with a focus on products that are adventurous, unique, and sure to make you smile.

Acttil will help publish and provide “marketing expertise, analytics, monetization strategies, game feedback, and promotional / sales plans” to independent developers, and provide localization services, as well.

“We are optimistic with the current digital content environment. It is quite promising for independent developers and we would love to work closely with them and help achieve their goals,” said founding member Jack Niida.

The company name is based on its six core values, “acceptance, creativity, teamwork, trust, innovation, and love.”

    Have to see what their portfolio is going to look like first, sounds like they’re going to be doing IOS and Android games to start off. May be the safest route, we’ll see

      Well maybe it will be easier for the PS4 atleast that’s what Sony promised

        Development will be easier. That doesn’t really affect them as a content publisher (beyond the removal of some barriers to getting on PSN, anyway) and localization group.

    aww :P

    I’m interested in seeing what kind of projects they’ll pick up for localization. They’ll probably start small, but it’ll be nice to have a new challenger around.

    Sounds like they’re gonna do a little of everything. A sound idea, but spreading themselves all over might be a little too ambitious. Guess we’ll see how it goes.

    A helluva logo though. The “love” part is sweet, but since these are former members of NIS America, I can’t help but wonder if it’s something more tongue in cheek xD

    Not sure what’s up with that name, but let’s see what they do.
