A secret no more: Secret Mode appoints Exertis Ztorm as its first service partner

Partnership begins with cosy sensation A Little to the Left

Leamington Spa, 28 November 2022: Indie gaming powerhouse Secret Mode, the publishing arm of Sumo Group, has signed a partnership deal with digital gaming distributor, Exertis Ztorm.

Led by ex-SEGA industry giant James Schall, Secret Mode promotes gaming for all with a multitude of cross-platform releases. Exertis Ztorm is the secure gateway between publishers and retailers who bring you the latest releases from Capcom, 2K, Rockstar and Xbox.

This dynamic pairing seeks to bring you the latest in indie games. This partnership will launch many exciting gaming projects in future, drawing on the passion of the two teams.

The first release of the partnership is A Little to the Left, an intuitive, cosy puzzle game from Canadian developer Max Inferno. A Little to the Left has been featured across a multitude of major gaming events throughout 2022 including Day of the Devs, Future Games Show at Gamescom, Wholesome Direct and Indie World. Building on the popularity of cosy games such as Unpacking and Assemble with Care, A Little to the Left is a tidying-up puzzle game with a difference: your pet cat (inspired by the developers’ own cat) has a penchant for chaos and likes to interfere with your chores. A Little to the Left is now available on PC at most online game retailers.

William van Kerkvoorde, Director of Exertis Ztorm, says, “We are very proud to have signed Secret Mode to the global Exertis Ztorm distribution network. They have an exciting future ahead of them. It is great to support them on their journey and to together grow sustainable sales within the 3P PC retail market.”

James Schall, Director of Publishing at Secret Mode says, “I’m excited to work with Exertis Ztorm to bring Secret Mode titles to a wider audience. Exertis Ztorm’s great service and strong retail presence make it the ideal partner for our future launches.”

The partnership between Exertis Ztorm and Secret Mode is now live.
