Austin, TX  – Fork Parker, Devolver Digital’s infamous Chief Financial Officer and taco connoisseur, is once again sending his minions to the Game Developers Conference and SXSW in search of the finest ideas in independent game development as a part of this year’s Pitch Fork Parker initiative. Devolver Digital, curators of exquisitely handcrafted video games, provide independent studios with development funding, top-notch marketing and public relations resources, and a genuine partnership to help make a great video game something of legend - all while allowing the developer to maintain complete creative freedom on the project.

The inaugural Pitch Fork Parker initiative at GDC 2012 resulted in Devolver Digital signing the upcoming RPG-influenced puzzle game Dungeon Hearts for PC, Mac, and iOS by Chris Pavia.

Devolver Digital has given me opportunities that would have been nearly impossible to get on my own as a new, unknown developer,” said Pavia. “Dungeon Hearts wouldn’t be half the game it is now without their support. Also, they give the best back rubs.

The Devolver Digital team has maintained a strong and non-sexual loving relationship with many talented independent developers over multiple titles - a testament to their belief in forging genuine and honest partnerships with their developers.

“Devolver Digital once got me a hotel room with zebra print walls & breakfast tacos,” added JW Nijman, one half of Dutch developer Vlambeer.

“I was under the impression that being ‘developer friendly’ just meant buying them dinner, drinks, and possibly a sensual massage,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker. “But our business development team is more in favor of honesty, integrity, and creative freedom so…you know…whatever.”
