GameStick Announces New $250 Tier on Kickstarter

The team behind GameStick today announced a new pledge tier specifically to support the Indie developer community in making the leap to the big screen as it's Kickstarter campaign rapidly approaches the 500% mark with over a week still to go.

The new tier, which sits at just $249 has been limited to just 250 backers, and gives indie developers aone-time offer to gain an unprecedented 100% revenue share for their game for a fullsix months as well as a GameStick bundle at launch in April.

"In the few short weeks following the campaign launch, we have had hundreds of developers sign up for access to our SDK, from established games studios to smaller Indie developers", says Baroova, Head of Games at GameStick, "what better way to repay this incredible support and to accelerate the big screen gaming revolution than with an offer that directly rewards those who were first to support us?"

The team behind GameStick have made a number of popular announcements this week in response to direct requests from the Kickstarter community such as the inclusion of an SDMicro memory expansion slot on the device itself and a dock providing support for peripheral hardware such as keyboard, mice, microphones and cameras.

Baroovahas been coordinating with many top named studios as well as indies developers happy to publically support GameStick in its quest to bring affordable gaming to the big screen:

Roman Tisserand, CTO and Co-Founder of DotEmusaid, "We are very excited to bring our portfolio on games (including Another World, R-TYPE and Raiden Legacy) to GameStick"

Says Jason Kingsley OBE, Founder of Rebellion and owner of AD2000, "The video games industry has benefitted time and time again from ideas that disrupt the status quo. A new wave of devices such as GameStick - built on truly open platforms that bring affordable gaming to the big screen could prove the start of an interesting revolution - one which I thoroughly support and watch with interest."
