CINCINNATI, OHIO (USA) – October 7, 2011 – indiePub , a subsidiary of Zoo Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ CM: ZOOG), is ready to reveal more details concerning its soon-to-launch indies-only publishing platform.
At the time indiePub 's service launches, the new indiePub platform will support indie games and apps made for PC (Windows), Macintosh (OS X), Linux and Android devices (phones and tablets). indiePub , in an effort to be the most inclusive digital distribution service, will allow people to purchase apps and games for and through each platform.
Developers will earn 75% of the royalties made from their games and apps sold through indiePub , making it one of the most competitive revenue percentages in the digital downloads industry. Registration will be free and available to all indie developers.
indiePub will also allow Pub owners to add links to iOS* (iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad) apps, including games, to their Pubs.
indiePub has been actively researching and developing its service based on feedback from frustrated indie developers who have been looking for a singular, feature-filled place where they can safely sell and distribute their games and apps across multiple devices. The result is indiePub's unique distributed delivery system with integrated social networking technologies that will provide a cohesive, cross-platform application delivery service.
The heart of indiePub will be its community of developers, Pub owners and consumers who will converge through traditional and social mechanisms to discus, rate, recommend, share and distribute games and apps. Anyone will be able to open a Pub and instantly begin making money using indiePub 's distributed sales tools on their favorite social networking services (including Facebook, Twitter, blogs and websites).
The new indiePub service will be available to everyone via computers and mobile devices beginning Q4 2011.
*Note: Apple's royalty rates apply for iOS apps and games.
