Indie Giving 2015 Recap

From FlashGameLicense Blog

by Aaron on March 27, 2015 06:02 PM

What an amazing Indie Giving!  It was great meeting you all (many of you, for the first time) and working beside you during the event.

Every year we are amazed by how hard working and compassionate the indie game community is, and this year was no different. From serving food to the homeless and less fortunate, to painting and cleaning, everyone did such a great job that we even surpassed the expectations of Hands On Bay Area and ECS.  In fact, we received this message shortly after our event from Hands On Bay Area:

“the staff and residents of the shelter were thrilled with the results and were impressed with the amount of work the team accomplished.”

And of course, the connections and community we built among each other was also great.  We ran into many of you during GDC and we hope there were likewise interactions throughout the week between all the Indie Givers.

We try to improve this event every year, so your feedback is greatly appreciated!

FGL and HTML5: an update

From FlashGameLicense Blog

by Chris on March 24, 2015 03:10 PM

Last year FGL made a huge push for HTML5 and HTML5 game development. We partnered with companies like Amazon, Samsung, and Big Rebel. We helped push HTML5 games to large audiences through kik, iWin, PlayPhone, multiple mobile-web portals, and more.  We helped push the first ever HTML5 game to Yahoo games.  We had over 100 HTML5 games featured by Amazon in their app store.  We paid out over $800,000 to HTML5 developers.

To accomplish this, we built many new systems.  We now have a very cool HTML5 game shop, where publishers can upload their branding, buy games, and download the games with their branding within minutes… without even having to contact a developer.  We have a distribution system that not only pushes games to our current distribution channels, but is built to automatically support future channels without a developer having to update the game in any way.  We have a QA system and team that ensures games work on dozens of the most popular devices.  We built a “Portal in a Box” framework to allow anyone to easily host HTML5 games on the mobile-web.

In all, we had over 2,000 HTML5 games go through our system.

We are proud of what we’ve accomplished.  And we’re even prouder of what the developers we’ve worked with have accomplished.  We were very fortunate to work with so many amazing developers and their games.

However, as we mentioned in our Q4 Developer Earnings Update, after a couple of boosts, revenue from HTML5 games dropped, then stagnated near the end of 2014.  This trend has now continued through the beginning of 2015.  We have tried several things to bump HTML5 revenue back up, but to no avail.

Due to this, we have decided to stop onboarding HTML5 games into our distribution system or HTML5 Game Shop.  This does not mean we will stop support of these services, but we will no longer accept submissions to them.

Also, we will continue to support HTML5 game uploads to our traditional Marketplace and Game Shop.  In fact, this is the one area where we’ve seen some minor growth for HTML5 games as there are still many companies licensing content for the mobile-web.

To reiterate, in order to be clear: FGL will continue to support all of our systems, and will continue to push the games we’ve previously onboarded (in fact, we still have a couple of big deals in the works).  Nothing will be “shut down,” but we will not be building any of the systems out or focusing on growing any of them in the near future. FGL still believes the mobile web is a great platform to build for.  We see all the benefits of a market that is open, without a company who can control both what gets in and what is featured.  We also think the concept of a game working on both mobile and desktop devices with one code base is a great one.  But, for us at least, HTML5 and the mobile web’s time hasn’t yet come.  When there is a market for an abundance of great games on the mobile-web, we’ll be ready.  And we’ll do everything we can to help developers take advantage of the new market.

Grab These Coins

From Armor Games Blog

On Saint Patrick’s Day we were left questioning what would we do if we followed a rainbow and found a leprechaun’s pot of gold? We decided on an epic castle with a building-sized Sushi Cat statue would be a good start. We’d even throw a party. You’d be invited. We like you. We also like treasure, so today we’re going to open a Scrooge McDuck vault worth of games where you collect gold coins.

It’s a little known fact that 4 out of 5 coinbox plumbers get seriously injured on the job. Please think of the plumbers. Help rid the world of vicious coinboxes by using various weapons and workers. Did we mention polka? Maybe we shouldn’t.
