Viz Media has been recently dipping its toes into game publishing with a few indie titles and during this week they have announced a new title made by the talented artist Picogram with the help of Rose City Games
Viz Medias first published game was The World Next Door, a visual novel puzzle that was released back in March. The second game they are publishing, Cat Lady, has no confirmed release date.
