Double Eleven did the grunt work of converting the PS3 LittleBigPlanet game to the Vita, while Tarsier came up with the level design. The company now plans to go its own way, developing for PSN on both Vita and PS3, and publishing titles from other indies.
The company's site says: "Double Eleven have launched a new venture into video games publishing. We will be expanding into marketing and distributing of our own games, and of other indie studios’ games. Initially, we will be using the PlayStation Network (PSN) as our main digital distribution platform, supporting both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita formats."
Double Eleven is looking for project managers and UI designers as it expands, and while there's no games listed yet, other than a "coming soon" for the next project, they should be a team to watch. Hopefully they, and the likes of FuturLab, Ripstone and others keep the Vita's flag (and UK development) flying.
