Plug In Digital acquires
Black Shell Media’s publishing operations

Plug In Digital is pleased to announce the acquisition of Black Shell Media’s publishing operations. From February 1st, 2021, the french company will be publishing Black Shell Media’s catalog of third-party titles, including the roguelike dungeon crawler Dungeon Souls, the multiplayer action game Zombie Party, and the anime puzzler Raining Blobs.

As part of the acquisition, Plug In Digital will also be publishing SanctuaryRPG: Black Edition and Overture, two of Black Shell Media in-house titles. Black Shell Media will no longer be taking on new publishing clients, and is instead encouraging developers to reach out to Plug In Digital if they are seeking a publisher.

Raghav Mathur (Founder, Black Shell Media) has spoken about this acquisition: “I am confident that Black Shell Media’s games will continue to delight players and reach new audiences with the great team at Plug In Digital. Black Shell Media worked with Plug In Digital for the initial launch of SanctuaryRPG almost 7 years ago, and we learned a lot from the way Francis ran his company. It feels almost poetic that Black Shell Media’s journey in the world of indie games started and ended with Plug In Digital. I’m happy to be passing the torch of publishing our catalog to someone I know and trust, whose success speaks for itself.”

We have a long history with Black Shell Media, one of our very first partners and a perfect example of Plug In Digital values: to make profitable business for everyone while preserving strong loyalty and friendly bounds. Acquiring their catalog when a page is being turned on their side is for us the perfect way to keep this partnership alive and make sure the energy and talent they put into their games are still acknowledged and rewarded.” Said Francis Ingrand, CEO and founder of Plug In Digital.
