Mike Rose, Pocket Gamer alumnus and former PR Manager at indie developer TinyBuild, has joined Liverpool-based publisher Ripstone Games.
Here, his role will involve juggling PR, developer relations, and production tasks.
At TinyBuild, Rose oversaw a number of headline-grabbing initiatives, most notably using Twitch as a platform for promotion and fan engagement.
The early release of PC and mobile boxing management sim Punch Club, conditional on Twitch users working together to complete the game, was a popular move that paid off, with the game passing $2 million in revenue as of February.
Ripstone Games has traditionally been known as a digital console game publisher, but is now seeking games to publish across PC, console, and mobile platforms.
