PIG OUT WINS OUT WITH NEW GALAXY S4

William Garret of Pig Out Productions has become the latest winner of a Samsung Galaxy S4 with 100% Indie.

The independent developer has created a range of games, from fishing challenges to moto races and monster truck action to ski-ing, but it’s thanks to the latest chapter of his Hidden Garden Series that he now has this piece of kit to test future releases.

The stunning HIDDEN GARDEN FANTASY went live on the Samsung App marketplace through 100% Indie this August, meaning Pig Out Productions automatically went into a free prize draw for the initiative’s latest kit giveaway.

100% Indie helps independent game developers get published as Samsung Apps  but is also committed to supporting them with marketing, technical support and advice - and tech treats like this. Pig Out Productions is the third independent developer to benefit from free kit to date and there are more giveaways to come.

William aims to have 100 games on the Samsung app store by Christmas. “We were thrilled to have the opportunity to work with 100% Indie; the whole process was smooth and simple,” he said. "They are willing to take care of their developers and that means a lot to me and my business."
