Independent video game publisher Versus Evil is keeping the indie vibe alive in 2019, with a couple of new titles launching throughout the course of the year; Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, Yaga, Cardpocalypse, Faeria, Into The Dead 2 and Hitchhiker.

Following on from its PC launch in 2018, the award winning RPG, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire heads to console for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this year.PlayStation and Xbox One players will be able to explore the exotic Deadfire archipelago and experience the classic RPG gameplay. Nintendo Switch players will also get a special treat when the original Pillars of Eternity launches on the platform later this year, courtesy of Versus Evil.

On top of the new game announcements, Versus Evil is announcing a new indie game development fund as it looks towards 2020 in its publishing ventures.

“2019 is a momentous year for Versus Evil. It’s a year of unprecedented growth for the company.  We have added new team members, new developers and a full slate of fun, unique, independently developed video games from creators located around the world,” said Steve Escalante, GM and Founder of Versus Evil. “We’re also excited about our new independent video game fund which will allow us to continue to invest in more games for 2020, 2021 and beyond. If you are a developer that has an amazing game in the role-playing, strategy or action genres, we want to speak with you.  Let’s catch up at GDC and PAX East! I am so proud of what the Versus Evil team has built and look forward to the next award winning game!”

Versus Evil will soon reveal more on the animated RPG, Yaga, which tells the tale of Ivan, a one-handed blacksmith cursed with bad luck who must take on a series of impossible tasks.

Also launching this year, Cardpocalypse, follows 10-year old Jess as she starts at a new school where all the kids are collecting and playing the Mega Mutant Power Pets card game. Set in the 1990’s, Cardpocalypse is a single-player card game where you change the cards and the rules as you play.

Hitchhiker is another beautifully realized title launching this winter. Described as thought-provoking, spooky, and compulsively entertaining, Hitchhiker propels the player through five different philosophical road trips in which they must piece together clues to solve a mystery.

Versus Evil has also taken over the publishing duties on the strategy card game Faeria, providing assistance to developer Abrakam in releasing and promoting the game to a more diverse set of online gaming stores, as well as bringing the console version to fruition. Versus Evil will be presenting both Faeria and Faeria’s new DLC pack at GDC.

Last but not least, zombie survival game Into The Dead® 2 will be coming to Nintendo Switch. The Into the Dead franchise is finally making its long-awaited debut on console after amassing more than 100 million downloads on mobile. Nintendo Switch players will enjoy PikPok’s thrilling gameplay and an arsenal of powerful weapons.
