Team 17 has announced they’ve partnered with 16-year old Melbourne based student and developer Anthony Tan to publish Way to the Woods.

The highly anticipated title attracted a lot of attention on Reddit which is a third person adventure game where you play as a deer and her fawn exploring a strange world.

“Way to the Woods is an absolutely beautiful, unique looking game and upon speaking with Anthony, we could not have been more impressed. He’s an incredibly mature person for his age  with  a  very  bright  future  ahead  of  him  and its  mind  blowing  what  he’s  achieved  thus far.

Team17 is helping nurture a number of studios around the world and I personally can’t wait  to  help  Anthony  achieve  his  goals.  We’re extremely excited  to  be  here  to  share  this journey with him” said Debbie Bestwick, CEO of Team17.

“To join a label that is responsible for helping teams such as Playtonic, Lilith, Mouldy Toof and many more is like a dream come true! I’m so excited to be working with an experienced label like Team17 and I’m confident that it’s the right positive step for Way to the Woods” added Anthony Tan, founder of Studio Happy Bee.

Visually the game looks amazing and we can’t wait to check this title out.
