Good Shepherd’s proven model ensures a risk-mitigated investment opportunity with short-term return that prioritizes investor capital. We guarantee full funding of every project with our own money, but offer investors the chance to share in the financial success of our games.
This approach instills investors with confidence that the project will get to market, and creates a midstream investment model that delivers risk-mitigated, high velocity returns. Investments are used for game development, production, testing, language localization and PR/marketing activities.Get Started

Project Management We find and fund video game projects from the most promising developers, establish development goals, manage milestone payments and guide the developer through all stages of the project.
Communication We frequently update our investor community throughout project development to bolster involvement and instill complete confidence in our investments.
Investor Dashboard Use a simple online platform to complete all investment transactions and monitor individual investment performance. You can learn about Good Shepherd’s video game projects, view financial projections, choose the games in which you’d like to invest and review the investment terms. Our team is always available to answer questions or discuss projects.
Short Term We only open game projects to investor capital toward the mid-point of the development cycle, decreasing the gap between investment and return.
Preferred Return To lower risk and encourage reinvestment, we give investors priority return on revenue generated after publication until 100% of your investment is paid back. Investors receive this initial payout approximately 90 days from the date a game is released for sale.
Fair Conditions Our investment community invests in game projects under the same terms as Good Shepherd and its founding partners.
Proportional Payouts After the preferred return for investors is satisfied in full, proportional payments are split between developers, investors and Good Shepherd. Typically, developers receive approximately 60% of the proportional payout. Investors and the publisher split the remaining 40% based on project size and publisher costs. We make investor payouts on a quarterly basis over a five-year term, or the lifetime of the game.
