Funding/distribution for iOS game developers - GameLicenses.com - Jul 2, 2011 01:52 PM
I wanted to introduce you all to our new website, GameLicenses.com , which is an auction site for game developers and publishers.
We all know we can submit our apps ourselves, so we don't need a distributor like developing for some consoles, but what if you are trying to find funding for a new game that requires a budget that you don't have? Here's where the website can help. If you post a demo of the game, and add a publishing license, then potential publishers will come to you. It's a central place for developers trying to find publishers, and vice versa.
If you have existing games, you can also make money of them here. For example, there are many companies out there looking to have games made that promote their products. Why not add a rebranding (reskin) license and sell the games with some upgrades and new development?
How about localizing your game for other regions? Maybe you're not interested, but many others are. You could offer your game up for localization and people in those countries will come to you and pay you for the right to distribute your game in their region. Ka-CHING!
There's of course many other options, like in-game advertising/porting, but I'll let you explore those options for yourself. Check it out for yourself - it's the latest great thing in game development! Looking forward to seeing you there.
