Date, 2019 -- Erie, Pennsylvania-based indie game publisher Whitethorn Digital has announced its five cohort games for the 2020 season.  These games complement the existing titles already published through Whitethorn, including Where the Bees Make Honey, BOMBFEST and the recently released 3D collect-a-thon platformer Newt One.  




Whitethorn Digital is proud to present Lake, an original IP from Gamious, creators of the hit game Turmoil.
