Giving back to the industry that gave us everything
We are a group of friends and investors united by our love for video games who created a fully boutique venture fund exclusively for indie PC & Consoles licenses
Our adaptative approach aims at filtering, assessing and early funding upcoming impactful titles all while offering the most adaptated business model to independent productions
We have a fifteen years know-how in the industry and brought our former gaming companies to high profitability and up to the point of publicly listing them
We co-invest with established publishers or work jointly with experienced business partners to ensure that whether our games self-publish or not, they ship in the best conditions possible
We are not a bank, we are not a family office, we are not an institution. Every penny invested comes from our own pockets. You talk directly with the investors, you talk directly with us
We have built brands from scratch. While doing so we gathered an extensive savoir-faire in digital distribution, royalties, payment service providers, social affiliation, influencer marketing, SEO-SEM and monetization of virtual economies
Making indie games is hard and takes time. Productions have their highs and lows. While we are hands off and our teams have full creative freedom, we ensure over the course of the development to get them the necessary help to iterate on their original visions.
Getting the right advising oftens means talking to the right people. It can be hard for indie teams to get proper attention from first parties, platforms and other key players, for that matter we step in at your demand to make sure you get the right nudge towards the direction you want for your game
We witnessed over more than a decade what gamers wanted and delivered it to them
Now we intend to do the same by financing projects players look forward to get their hands on
