Team17 has revealed that once Planet Alpha releases next month, the sci-fi platform adventure will be the 100th game that the company has published.

Founded in 1990, Team17 started out helping to publish Amiga and MS-DOS games like Qwak, Silverball and Super Stardust.

Soon becoming famous for the Worms series, that has gone on to help developers publish games like The Escapists, Overcooked!, Yooka-Laylee and Yoku’s Island Express.

“The 100th game marks an incredible milestone for Team17 as we move closer towards our 30th year in this diverse and creative industry. Team17 started life as an indie publisher in 1990; the release of Planet Alpha in 2018 is a poignant moment for us all in that we have come full circle in bringing our expertise, perspective and values from our time as an independent developer to games publishing in this exciting modern era of indie games,” enthuses Team17 CEO Debbie Bestwick MBE.

“I’d like to pay tribute to employees of Team17, both past and present, as we celebrate the release of a multitude of titles across many game systems from 16-bit and beyond and in countries far and wide. I’m appreciative, humbled and honoured to work with talented developers in bringing their wonderful creations to fans everywhere. We’re just as passionate and excited for the next 100 games!”

Planet Alpha will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on September 4th.
