We have amazing news! Choice Provisions is getting into game publishing! Introducing...
We realized a while back that the experience we've gained as a developer has given us a solid idea of what it is that developers need. After talking it over a bit internally, we realized we had the infrastructure in place to provide developers with all of these things (testing, marketing, distribution, and everything in between). We'll have more details to share about all that later, but in the meantime, check out the first three games we're publishing!
Developer: Neon Deity Games
Platforms: Wii U, Steam, Vita, and PS4 (and maybe more!)
Release: Q2 2015
Shütshimi is a randomized shoot 'em up about a muscle-bound fish with memory problems defending the seven seas.
Armed with your trusty bullet-morphing shotgun, defeat or navigate through waves of enemies and collect powerups as you battle your way through each of the game's bosses. But there's a catch (there's always a catch): you've been cursed with an incredibly short attention span. Combat waves and upgrade cycles only last 10 seconds a piece, so you'd better act fast!
(formerly known as Dragon Fantasy Book I)
Developer: Muteki Corporation
Platforms: 3DS, Wii U, Steam
Release Date: Q1 2015
Experience an all-new old adventure! Fight your way through hordes of strange, silly, and scary monsters! Explore the caves, castles, and dungeons of an ancient evil! Meet warriors, princes, pirates, zombies, and crazy old woodsmen in a huge world of epic retro adventure! Authentic 8-bit artwork and an original soundtrack by renowned Bay Area 8-bit musician, Crashfaster keeps the game true to its retro roots.
Originally released on Vita, PS3, and iOS, Dragon Fantasy: The Volumes of Westeria is finally making its way to 3DS, Wii U, and Steam!
(Formerly known as Dragon Fantasy Book II)
Developer: Muteki Corporation
Platform: 3DS, Wii U, Steam
Release Date: Q3 2015
Join Ogden and the heroes of Westeria in this classic JRPG epic, Dragon Fantasy: The Black Tome of Ice. Travel through the frozen wastelands of Tundaria, experiencing action-packed battles without random encounters, using spatially aware Area-of-Effect attacks and power moves. Travel by pirate ship, defending against enemies in thrilling ship-to-ship rock monster combat! Defeat oncoming hordes of demons and huge bosses that threaten the entire world of Dragon Fantasy.
Originally released on Vita and PS3, Dragon Fantasy: The Black Tome of Ice is finally making its way to 3DS, Wii U, and Steam!

We just launched a surprise update for Woah Dave! It's called Woah Dave! Deluxe, and it features:
- Two new levels, each of which will challenge even the best Woah Dave! players to rethink their strategy
- Five new characters (plus a hidden sixth!)
- Boss battles!
- New enemy types!
- Rideable UFOs!
- A “Classic Mode” for all those Woah Dave! purists who would prefer their game remain unchanged
- Maybe a few additional Easter eggs…
The update will be free for all platforms and is available on Steam right this second. If you own the game, fire up the Steam client and give it a whirly-poo! If you're waiting to check it out on other systems, you won't have to wait long. We're working as hard as we can to get it out everywhere!
Oh, and one more thing...
Woah Dave! is coming to the Wii U, free update and all!
You asked for it, and we were happy to deliver.
Enjoy all the new Woah Dave! content, and let us know what you think on Twitter!

You probably already saw our flurry of tweets and Facebook posts, but I wanted to write up a quick blog post just in case. Destructamundo is out today for iOS and Steam! If this is your first time hearing about the game, shame on you. But also here's a quick description of it:
You want to hear a joke? Universal peace. I mean, why settle for serenity when you can unleash an arsenal of high-powered warheads and destroy every planetary system in the universe? Take that, faraway civilizations!
Destructamundo is a game of chain reactions and massive explosions. Set off a warhead and watch the fireworks as you cause as much widespread damage as possible by setting off long, winding combos that reach throughout the cosmos. Destroy an entire planetary system in a single shot (or, if you’re not so cunning, destroy it in a couple of shots). Why would you do such a horrible thing, you might ask? For shiny gold medals, of course! Well, and the survival of your species, but that’s decidedly less important.
Those of you who have been playing our games since the BIT.TRIP series have probably noticed we've started to branch out a bit and try new things. Destructamundo and Woah Dave! are two examples of this, and you'll be seeing even more examples in the near future. Stay tuned.
