"We’ve had the immense honor of working with some of the most talented independent game creators in the world," Annapurna Interactive president Nathan Gary said in a statement. "Many of us came from an internal development background and are excited to make this a part of Annapurna Interactive moving forward. We can’t wait to share more about what's to come — anything is possible."

Among the publisher's latest titles is the narrative puzzle game I Am Dead, from U.K.-based developer and designer Ricky Haggett and Richard Hogg; and the visual novel If Found, from Dublin-based studio Dreamfeel.

Founded in 2016 as a division of Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures, the company is headquartered in West Hollywood and has become well known for the narrative-driven and emotional games Florence and What Remains of Edith Finch, in addition to the musical adventure Sayonara Wild Hearts and action and mystery-infused BAFTA Games winner Outer Wilds.
