GOG.com launches submission portal for indie devs

New, 2 comments

Digital distributor of Windows PC and Mac games, GOG.com, has launched a submission portal for indie developers, allowing devs to submit their own games to be considered for distribution on the platform.

Once a game is submitted portal, GOG will select titles based on qualities, such as gameplay depth, originality and polish. The distributor aims to contact devs within to weeks of submission with its decision, saying regardless of its decision "We will never leave you without feedback!"

Developers have a choice of either allowing GOG to take 30 percent of the royalties or accept an advance and have the distributor take 40 percent of royalties. The split is knocked back to 30 percent awarded to GOG once the advance has been recouped.

Every successful submission gets "cross-media marketing campaign," according to GOG, which includes becoming the "site's main feature, with an extra-large header banner and a frontpage news article." Games will also be promoted on the distributor's Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, YouTube and other media platforms.
