Publishing and Private Investments for Indie Games

Why Choose Good Shepherd?

Our results speak for themselves. 
100% of our projects have been completed and successfully released to market. One of our games became the global number one selling game on Steam. Others became staff picks at Apple, appeared as featured games and landed on top ten seller lists. 


Success is in our interest. 
We pay our investors back first and the vast majority return to invest multiple times. All investors receive priority returns until they recoup their full investment, which greatly reduces capital risk while allowing us to fairly reward the game developers upon success. Our company invests alongside our investors on the same terms.


We know the industry. 
Achievement is not unusual for our team with decades of production, publishing and investment experience. After all, we’ve worked exclusively with independent developers and original IPs since 2013. This dedication has resulted in a select, happy, profitable and eager network of investors for Good Shepherd. Join us and become a part of them. 


a better bridge between art and commerce

We have built a better bridge between art and commerce, where game developers and investors who help to enable them are respected equally and both are protected and served by our management team. 

With our proprietary model and experience, we consistently achieve success in both financial and experiential terms, helping indies work towards financial independence without compromising their vision, and helping ensure that new games investors are fairly rewarded for their trust and support. Our track record speaks for itself.

artist-first relationships

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.

About Good Shepherd

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.
