EA announced EA Originals, a new program to help small devs bring creative experiences to player in much the same way in helped bring Unravel to fruition.

EA reps said that Originals will let them cater unique experiences by supporting small developers and helping them with all aspects of development, from marketing to publishing and support beyond release. Originals should offer developers greater security, and, according to EA, all profits will go back into developers' pockets to let them keep creating new types of games.

Fe, the first title announced in the Originals line, resembles a descendant of Journey. In Fe, Swedish developer Zoink Games casts you as a tiny critter all alone in a dark, vast forest. You explore and discover by learning songs to unlock new stretches of wilderness.
