Right now, the platforms of note include Robot Cache and Equiti Games. A new player is entering the field, however, in the form of Planet Digital Partners. The group was founded last year, and calls itself a “collective of video game management, development studios, distribution and marketing executives that develops, manufactures, and markets video games.” That said, what makes Planet Digital exciting is the people behind it.
Leading the platform is Steve Grossman, former executive producer of the Nintendo World Championships. Kelly Sumner, previously CEO of both Take-Two and RedOctane, is studio director. The creative directors are Matt Karch and Andrey Iones who founded Saber Interactive, and former president of PlayStation Europe Chris Deering is on the board. Despite moving into an unknown field, Planet Digital has an experienced team ready to do so.
