Revenue sharing for Game Maker games

on May 10, 2009 - 3604 Views

Game Jolt LogoIndie gaming website GameJolt (website | GMB review) has launched a beta version of their ad revenue sharing scheme.  The website, which also hosts games written in languages other than Game Maker, will pay developers a percentage of the advertising income derived from any pages relating to a particular developer.

For developers that sign up in the beta period the proportion of revenue shared with the developer is set at 50%.  Developers are also free to include their own advertisements within their games for a potential financial extra gain or cross-product promotion.

YoYo Games are yet to release any details on any their proposed revenue-sharing scheme first hinted at by Sandy in February 2008 (see links below) but there have been various failed community-instigated attempts.
