Ripping a really great idea from our friends at Dejobaan, we want to help other developers get past the $100 Valve Greenlight fee.
This blog post isn’t about whether Greenlight is good or not. We’ll leave that to you to decide.
wantneed to submit to Steam Greenlight, but feel you can’t because of the required $100 Child’s Play donation, we want to make it possible. Here’s money where our mouth is:
- We will loan $100 up to three awesome aspiring indie developers. Keep reading..
- We're calling on other established indie developers to do the same.
If you’re an indie willing to do put up $100 as well, please drop us an e-mail at email@example.com with a subject: Greenlight Help!
But you aren’t alone, right? We’ll loan up to three indies $100 each, to submit their game on Steam’s Greenlight platform. For consideration, you must do this:
Email: Contact us via e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to your game’s website by September 10th, 2012.
Say: In the e-mail, a) tell us a bit about your game, b) tell us a bit about yourself, and c) promise us that you realize that nobody owes you anything, and that you’ll pay us back before the end of the year.
Disseminate: Spread the word so that other indies will offer similar loans.
By the end of this September, we’ll pick someone we feel is awesome, and loan ‘em the cash--simple.
