The retailer best known for selling games announced plans Monday to launch a new division called GameTrust that will help distribute and market them. GameTrust will initially publish games from a lineup of developers that includes the creators of the "Trine," ''Deadlight" and "Ratchet & Clank" series. GameTrust's developers are Helsinki, Finland-based "Trine" creator Frozenbyte; Irvine, Calif.-based "God of War: Chains of Olympus" developer Ready at Dawn Studios; Madrid, Spain-based "Deadlight" studio Tequila Works; and "Ratchet & Clank" creator Insomniac Games, which has studios in Burbank, Calif., and Durham, N.C. GameStop announced in January it was publishing "Song of the Deep," a side-scrolling adventure from Insomniac Games about a young girl who goes searching underwater for her lost-at-sea fisherman father. The Grapevine, Texas-based company operates more than 6,900 stores in 14 countries and owns the browser-based game site Kongregate.com.
