Zallag gives birth to Creatips to help independent developers

Zallag, a video game publisher 100% dedicated to digital distribution, gives birth to Creatips. After a market study and following requests from several independent studios, Zallag decided to help them promote and sell their games worldwide with Creatips.

Creatips allows developers to sell their productions in the largest and the most effective way possible. This implies being present not exclusively on the big European and American platforms. Indeed, digital distribution is gaining momentum and many distribution channels are emerging throughout the world. At Creatips we will use our connections and contacts to make sure independent games meet the largest possible audience. This commercial support will be completed by an international marketing support.

As a video game and comic-book publisher specialized in digital distribution, Zallag has its own sales and marketing address book. These skills and contacts are essential for studios that might not possess such information. In order to offera specific and qualitative service, this new activity will be separated from Zallag and be known as“Creatips".

Digital distribution is bringing fantastic opportunities for independent developers. However, the lack of visibility is one of the many challenges they have to face regarding this new way of distributing games. Creatips’ goal is to ensure that independent games finally meet the success they deserve.

« It is only by federating the independents’ strengths

that we can gain visibility from the consumers and

eventually gain more independence from the majors

companies of this industry» says Christelle Chandavoine,

Zallag’s CEO.
