Our Model is a collective win
At Good Shepherd, we ensure that the process of making games is great for all parties involved. Both investors and game developers deserve to have a positive experience, and the entire development and publishing process needs to be managed carefully.
That’s where we come in. We’re bridging the gap between finance and modern game publishing to create great games that also make great investments. At Good Shepherd, we are fully committed to applying our extensive independent game production and publishing experience to manage risk and capital to ensure our games make it through all stages of development with proven success. Good Shepherd is built on the principle of nurturing long term partnerships with both artists and investors so that everyone can benefit.
At this time, we are only accepting investments from accredited (US) investors, private investors from the Netherlands, Poland, and China and those who qualify as sophisticated (UK) investors or eligible investor (EU/Can) in their country of legal residence.
The rules and thresholds are different for each country or territory, and are also still evolving as this exciting new frontier in individual investing continues to develop.
We want our investors to feel confident in their investment and be rewarded with a good return, so that when a project is complete, they are eager to invest all over again.
They'll be investing in game projects alongside Good Shepherd with the same terms as we have. They'll gain access to their own Investor Dashboard which shows any past + current game investments & how they are doing.
Our team of experienced developers, publishers and investors have developed a methodical, strategic approach to independent game development and publishing that produces a great product and in turn, results in a smart investment.
We start by partnering with the most promising developers and helping them consider every aspect of their budget, from production through release and beyond. Then we offer our investors opportunities to be part of a successful project return.
Our results speak for themselves. We have successfully published eighteen titles so far, of those eighteen, twelve have become profitable within the first months of release. One of our games became the global number one selling game on Steam! Others became staff picks at Apple, appeared as featured games and land on top ten seller lists.
Successes like these have resulted in a select, happy and eager network of investors. We are continuing to grow this network and scale our business responsibly & methodically, as we have since 2013.
