5 more are currently in progress
12 of the released games attained profitability within the first year of release, and many of those within the first few months. Our first title released has achieved more than a 200% return thus far, with two more years to go for profit sharing with investors.
We dual-spec as both artists and business people, and we believe strongly that the best way to do consistently good business in this space is to trust and respect the game creators enough to defer to them in all matters of creative control, including marketing and public relations work, and to keep the IP ownership in the hands of the artists that created it. We also believe that the developers and their projects should always be promoted and credited ahead of their publisher. We want developers to be strong and to continue to work with us because we are the best choice of publishing partners, not because of any position of weakness or obligation.
Good Shepherd is founded by a global network of experienced publishing professionals who have been successfully working with indies for more than two decades to produce and nimbly publish indie games. We seek out and recruit artists, writers, musicians, and creative powerhouses from other arenas to provide robust network connections for our developers. We help them produce their very best work to ensure financially sound, and most importantly, original and fun contributions to the gaming space.
As both game fans and experienced gamers, we invest in every single title alongside any investors we invite to our network, and we get the same deal terms as they do. We consider ourselves Good Shepherds not only of these projects, but of people’s investment dollars when they choose to trust us and support independent art with their hard-earned money.
EVERY project gets fully financed and produced. EVERY project receives our special attention as we promote, test, localize and release it to the global market. We help shepherd developer projects toward success, enabling the people behind them to achieve their dreams while our investors are ensured a return for their faith and generosity. We put our money and our reputation behind every project, personally, for a collective win.
