Keystone Indie brings together developers from across the world in a unique partnership that has created the go-to community for Indie Developers
What makes us different? We were formed by developers for developers, creating a world leading alliance.
We have an ever expanding range of partner developers in our community, creating the ultimate network of like-minded indie developers. We have created an incredible alliance and support each other, becoming a true force in developing the finest games!
We’re looking to partner up with developers like YOU!
Robert Anderson, Devil’s Peek Games & developer of The Puzzleverse
Thanks to our special relationships with a number of retailers around the world, we can provide market leading royalty rates for all titles you publish through us. Why do we offer you the best royalties? Quite simply because we have forged key distribution alliances based on our philanthropic aims, where distributors around the world are offering us a special deal, which we can pass on to you whilst also helping children with serious life-limiting illness. In fact, in many cases we offer more royalties to devs compared to even what they’d receive if they self-published.
Are there any catches or costs to all that we offer? The answer is no, we work in true partnership with all of our developers. We offer a royalty split with no hidden costs or recoups! You still own your game in entirety, but we do all the marketing and publishing at no cost to you! Our share is used to support children’s charities. It costs you nothing and you are not locked in to any long-term relationships! Although, we feel confident you will want to stick around!
All of our partner developers immediately become members of our community, where you can join with other developers in private chat rooms, forums and technical support groups that brings us all together. You really do become part of the family, offering contact with other Keystone Indie developers around the world and around the clock! Want to discuss a technical problem, share game ideas or just chew the fat? You are part of a growing community of developers all looking to forge alliances and help each other!
We provide free technical support and guidance for all Keystone Indie members from one of the world’s finest in-house development teams. Our development team have worked on scores of triple A games, for companies such as Electronic Arts, Atari and others. Our developers have had numerous Programmer of The Year, Artist and Best Game Awards. If you have an issue or need help with art, code, sound or any element of game design or coding EVERY Keystone Indie developer has access to this award-winning group for support!
We offer some of the strongest marketing and promotion in the business, with a team of experts who have marketed, sold and promoted some of the world’s top selling “mega hit” titles! If you have the product, we will get you in the limelight with a major publicity campaign! We also don’t charge for marketing. Most other publishers recoup marketing costs by holding back on paying developers royalties for a certain amount of time. Not with us! When the game makes money, so do YOU!
Keystone Games has box distribution networks accessing 43 countries across Europe, USA, Asia and Australasia, which guarantees that if your game is box-suitable, it will find its way to all major gaming retailers such as Game and Walmart.
We’ll place your products onto STEAM/PS Store with preferential marketing to create higher visibility of published games. This marketing really helps your product stand out from the crowd with massively enhanced visibility and access to Steam Sales pages.
