Calling all Indies!
We understand the cost of developing games is high so to show our support for the indie developer community, we have launched a one-time, Kickstarter-only offer of 100% rev share for six months, (minus transaction costs), to any developer interesting in seeing their game up on the big screen. It also gives you a shiny new GameStick that you can test on!
This is an incredible offer, providing exceptional value - one which we hope demonstrates how seriously we are taking our mission to bring affordable gaming to TV.
Due to obvious reasons, we have limited this pledge to just 250 so get in fast and please spread the word to anyone you think would be interested.
The offer is valid for a single game launched via the GameStick store by July 2013.
Finally, some words of support from some people you might find interesting..
Roman Tisserand, CTO and Co-Founder of DotEmu: "We are very excited to bring our portfolio on games (including Another World, R-TYPE and Raiden Legacy) to GameStick"
Jason Kingsley OBE, Founder of Rebellion and owner of AD2000: “The video games industry has benefited time and time again from ideas that disrupt the status quo. A new wave of devices such as GameStick - built on truly open platforms that bring affordable gaming to the big screen could prove the start of an interesting revolution – one which I thoroughly support and watch with interest.”
Hendrik Lesser, Board Member of the German Association of Game Developers: " I think the opportunity for micro consoles such as GameStick has never been bigger than now. They are perfectly suited to disrupt the console space.”
Paulina Bozek, creator of SingStar and founder of Inensu: "GameStick’s ability to support peripheral hardware such as microphones and dance mats is a great opportunity for indie developers looking to create a truly social experience around the big-screen”.
Chris Bergstresser, EVP Miniclip: "What GameStick offers is a direct and easy route to the big screen. We look forward to working with them to bring some of our classic titles to TV"
P.S. This offer will of course be extended to Founding Content Partners with early access to dev boards, premium positioning, the GameStick Bundle at launch and the SDK, who pledged $500.
