HOW WE WORK

– We can ramp up quickly, without a lot of work necessary from you. We can usually get started with a couple emails or a short call to find out exactly what you are looking for, and a couple keys to the game. We won’t eat up significant amounts of your dev time.
– If you choose to work with us, you’d list us as part of your team like any other staff or contractors.  Players won’t see us as a separate entity set up as a firewall between you and them, because we won’t be.
– We are NOT publishers. While we have some similarities to publishers, this is your game, and you keep all IP rights. We’re simply here to help you make your game better, and help you continue to make more games.
