PlayInjector Readies Bundle Site And Crowd Funding All In One
As we’re always prepared to share new deals with you, we’ve taken a look at a new bundle site called PlayInjector. It will work partially as a way to offer deals to consumers and partially to set up funds for developers and entrepreneurs.
Bundles work with a certain dynamic that offers a basic package of 4 games for a pay-what-you-want deal and adds a featured title for a minimum set price above that. Buyers can then choose to distribute their donation between the company, developers or charity. However, developers will automatically be given 30% of the pie, while a noted charity will be given 10%, which understandably leaves 60% of the price to be divided at will. A first edition will go up on May 24, 2013 and feature a core set of the following games, plus a featured title:
- Jack Keane
- Alien Shooter
- Alien Shooter 2
- Into the Dark
- Feature: Vampire Secrets: Eternal Love – $15+
On the other side, the Game Starter platform will help small companies drive funds from the public by featuring their project. Backers that choose to donate to a certain game have a certain advantage towards pledging, as they can be given a full refund when the game releases and sells. However, this refund consists of store credit, which can be later handed towards new projects. Applications can be made to have the store credit refunded to a bank account. Should the project fail, backers will naturally not be charged. It works a little like the crowd funding site IndieGogo on that aspect.
As a whole, PlayInjector has a lot of similarities to the popular Indie Gala work scheme. PlayInjector’s goal is to bring both gamers and developers to one central place with its dual project. The site is up right now, but PayPal transactions aren’t possible just yet, so don’t forget to wait for the deal to go live at the end of the week.
