Doncaster, UK - 7th May 2012
GameGadget today took a major step forward with the announcement that hundreds of Games shall be added to the GameGadget Games Marketplace and the latest release of its, “itunes style” PC Application is now available.
With Open Source Development, an important part of this project, support of the development community has always been a critical part of the process. Today marks the start of, what the folks at GameGadget hope, will be a large catalogue of Freeware and Shareware titles, to be offered alongside Premium Content.
GameGadget offers gamers, game developers and game publishers, unrivalled choice and flexibility in how they play, create and sell games. Described as the “iPod for Games” GameGadget is the first games console to be developed in the UK since the heyday of Spectrum and Amstrad over 20 years ago.
The GameGadget Application, the gaming equivalent of iTunes, allows for games to be downloaded directly onto the GameGadget via a secure DRM (Digtial Rights Management) system. Operating on a revenue share basis, developers of content receive revenue for every game that is sold.
Jason Cooper - founder of GameGadget commented
“There are a number of Open Source devices that allow developers to create content, such as the Dingoo, but this device is very complicated to use by the end user, and also not very easy to develop for. The Dingoo is also more expensive than the GameGagdet. Until the launch of GameGadget, there was no simple way for developers to distribute their games, or for users to easily enjoy them. GameGadgetGames provides a simple solution for content owners and end users alike.
Hot on the heels of a new £59.99 retail price (which amazingly includes 10 free classic SEGA games for download), the inclusion of this huge catalogue of games together with the existing range of Premium SEGA titles, means GameGadget now delivers unrivalled value for money.
Developers interested in submitting their games for download via GameGadgetGames should email firstname.lastname@example.org. Games can be provided for free or paid for with GameGadget offering a simple revenue sharing model.
