Epic Claims They Will Stop Pursuing Exclusives If Steam Gives Developers A Bigger Cut

The CEO of Epic Games, Tim Sweeney, has given Steam an ultimatum. If Valve offers the same compensation that Epic does for their titles, then they will stop signing exclusivity deals that keep games off of Steam.


"If Steam committed to a permanent 88% revenue share for all developers and publishers without major strings attached, Epic would hastily organize a retreat from exclusives (while honoring our partner commitments) and consider putting our own games on Steam," Sweeney wrote. "Such a move would be a glorious moment in the history of PC gaming, and would have a sweeping impact on other platforms for generations to come."

Epic Store Pays Better

Recently, many developers have been leaving Steam and signing exclusivity deals with Epic Games. One of the first games to make this move was the hit indie game, Ashen, which was then followed by AAA titles Metro Exodus and Borderlands 3. Ubisoft has almost completely left Steam and entered into a partnership with the Epic Games Store, moving its major PC releases to the platform starting with The Division 2.

Fans have certainly shown their discontent for this practice, particularly when games are moved from one store to another during the pre-order phase. Many have taken to various social media platforms to show their discontent while others have taken to "review bombing" games that have previous titles in the series such as Metro: Last Light and Metro 2033.


The brutal reactions from Steam users and Valve's slow response to the review bombings have led to criticism from the developers themselves. "Ironically, that this misuse is possible and that Steam has no interest in correcting this misuse makes me kind of happy about 2K's decision and makes me want to reconsider Gearbox Publishing's current posture on the platform," Gearbox studio head Randy Pitchford wrote.

Competition breeds innovation. Epic Games Store is offering creators better deals and Steam and its community is losing out on some key titles. Only time will tell if Steam decides to revisit their revenue sharing structure but until then, Epic Games will continue working on accumulating as many exclusives as they see fit.

Your Guide to Writing a Successful Game Development Press Release

For the last few years, you’ve poured your heart and soul into your game development project; regardless of the niche or system you’re building it for, but it comes to the point where you’re thinking about finalizing everything and releasing your creation to the rest of the world.

indie developer, indie game developers, indie games, indie game marketing, indie games, video game media, video game marketing

One of the best ways to market your game out to the masses and to create a hype/buzz around your upcoming game is to create a press release. You can then send this out to leading gaming publications, magazines, and websites which can review your game and hopefully feature you in their writing.

However, for many, this will be the first impression your game has on random members of the public, so you’ll want to make sure you get it right. With this in mind, today we’re going to explore everything you need to know in order to write a successful press release.

Be Unique

“The first and foremost thing you’ll want to remember is making sure your press release, company, and game stand out from the crowd. Imagine how many indie games are being released every week around the world, and these are all your competition to stand out from,” explains Michelle Harper, a blogger and regular contributor for BoomEssays and Help With Coursework.

An effective press release will engage the reader and give them something that they may have never seen before. Don’t be afraid to inject some of your personality into your content.

Aim for Perfection

Throughout every stage of your writing process, you need to make sure you’re writing to the highest possible quality. If your press release is full of mistakes, grammatical errors, typos, and punctuation problems, this is going to reflect extremely poorly on your game studio and doesn’t create good impressions for your upcoming game release.

You need to make sure you’re taking the time to read through, highlight and correct any mistakes in your release before sending it off, ensuring it’s the highest level of professionalism and readability.

Third Person Over First

Think about how many press releases a journalist receives every week for games. Tons. As a marketer for a game company, if you can make the writer’s job as easy as possible, you’re far more likely to get your press release chosen for publishing.

The easy way to do this is to imagine you’re the publication writing your own feature; not the studio. Write about yourself in this way for the best results.

Create a Powerful Headline

“The headline of your press release is, perhaps, the most important part of your press release because this is going to be the key element of your writing that will draw your reader in and will grab their attention. Fail to grab their attention, and you won’t have made an impact, and you’re more likely to have your release dismissed,” shares Nick Turner, a video game marketing consultant for Essayroo and Do My Assignment Online.

The best way to proceed is to write a simple headline that’s no more than five words and really has a lot of impact that grabs attention. You then want to include a subheading that has a bit more details and helps to set the tone of the rest of the press release.

For example, you could have something like;

Studio X Releases Game Y

The latest sci-fi space adventure that changes your perspective on reality

Don’t Forget Technical Details

It’s essential in your press release that you include the technical specifications of your game, so if a publication does write about you and feature your game, people reading can know what devices they need and what specifications their computers need to be.

This only needs to be a short and concise paragraph, but it’s so important you include it, so people can be easily educated into what game you’re offering and whether it’s available to them.

CI Games New Publishing Label for Indie Developers

Indie games continue to find success on the mass market. It’s a double-edged sword for indie developers. On one hand, gamers are actively seeking new indie games to try but on the other, it means a more competitive landscape. CI Games, developer and publisher, known for the Sniper Ghost Warrior and The Lords of the Fallen franchises announced a new publishing label dedicated to indie developers.

CI Games, Indie Developers, Indie Games, Indie Dev, Indie Publisher, Indie Publisher, United Label, Publisher for Indie Devs, video game news, gaming news, latest video games, indie dev news, indie game news

Known as United Label, it will bring on indie developers together and offer them the support they need to succeed. CI Games will kick the project off with 4 new indie games: Roki from Polygon Treehouse, Eldest Souls from Fallen Flag Studios, Tails of Iron from Odd Bug Studios, and Horae from Lunaris Iris. United Label is eager to expand and grow. They are actively seeking creative talents to offer them a “structure to success” and building meaningful long-term business relationships with their developers.

United Label Looking for Indie Developers

“We are bringing out existing publishing capabilities to talented developers. We started this process with one of our own IPs, by giving the entire project of Lords of the Fallen 2 to Defiant in New York.” says Marek Tyminski, CEO of CI Games

CI Games isn’t a Bethesda or EA, however, they’ve carved out a sizabe space for themselves in the market. In 2002, CI games made their existence known after selling over 7 million units of the Sniper Ghost Warrior franchise and 2 million units of Lords of the Fallen. Now, this developer / publisher is ready to lend a helping hand to other gamers and independent video game developers.

CI Games, Indie Developers, Indie Games, Indie Dev, Indie Publisher, Indie Publisher, United Label, Publisher for Indie Devs, video game news, gaming news, latest video games, indie dev news, indie game news

The massive success of Cuphead, Celeste, and countless other indie games prove there’s a hunger from the community to experience more independent titles. There are thousands of individuals with a passion for creating video games that have the chance to see their game played by millions. Climbing the mountain to the top alone is a treacherous journey. Organizations like CI Games wants to give creators the support they need to reach their goals. Sometimes, a little helping hand is all a talented person or team needs to achieve their vision.

For aspiring or long-time game developers looking for a strategic partnership with United Label, contact information can be found their website. It’s a big world of indie games out there, having the right team behind a project can mean the difference between success and a game that gets lost in the crowd.

Bizarre Indie Games That Somehow Exist

Bizarre Indie Games That Somehow Exist

Video games have always been a gateway to a magical and awesome procedural generated fantasy environments that promises a unique experience to anyone who plays it.

There’s Mass Effect, a space opera with epic proportions. There is Skyrim, a journey of one Dragonborn to defeat the dragon menace. Let’s not forget F.E.A.R, where you play a special force soldier being plagued by nightmares induced by your mother’s apparition who haunts you throughout the gameplay. You get my point.

And then, there are these games. Games so bizarre, that there is no way of explaining what was going through the head of the developers. Games that are so bizarre, you give up halfway trying to explain it to your friends. But, these games still let gamers feel some sort of a cathartic experience. So let’s look at bizarre games that somehow exist.

THE MISSING: J.J. Macfield and the Island of Memories - Best Friend Of The Year Simulator

the missing, macfield and the island of memories, bizzare indie games, indie games, indie developers, steam, steam games

First on the list is a masterpiece by Hidetaka Suehiro, who is well-known as SWERY or Swery65. This Japanese writer and video game director have produced numerous bizarre indie games, and this particular game is his recent hit.

the missing, macfield and the island of memories, bizzare indie games, indie games, indie developers, steam, steam games

Now, to put it bluntly, you die a lot in this game. A LOT. And there’s no avoiding it. Since it’s part of the game.

You play a character who goes around solving puzzles which involves numerous deaths. Death by lightning, by fire, by random objects hurling towards you. It’s a game with very Final Destination vibes. But you push on forward knowing that your best friend is missing, and death will not stop you from finding your friend.

DON’T MAKE LOVE - Insect Dating Simulator

don't make love, bizzare indie games, indie games, indie developers, steam, steam games

Yes, an odd choice for a game title. And it exactly involves what you’re thinking. If you’re wondering why would there be a game that would forbid you do not make love, well you’d understand if you just look at the characters.

Praying mantis. And if you’re not sure where I’m going with this, I’ll give you a second to google praying mantis mating ritual. We’ll wait.

Done? Now you know why the title makes sense.

don't make love, bizzare indie games, indie games, indie developers, steam, steam games

This bizarre indie game puts you in the shoes of a lovely praying mantis couple. The couple is constantly battling between two strong forces: the strong emotion of love, and the instinct to mate. Communication is the key to this game, as you are to communicate by typing whatever you feel to change the mood and flow to the inevitable outcome. You’ll get a different response that corresponds with your typed questions or statements.

The female praying mantis is known to devour the male during intercourse for proper nourishment. So will you LITERALLY risk death for the one you love? If not… then DON’T MAKE LOVE.

THE STANLEY PARABLE - The Matrix with Voiceover

the stanley parable, bizarre indie games, indie games, indie developers, steam, steam games

We’re heading deeper into the rabbit’s hole. To give you a sense of what this game is about, here’s the game’s description on Steam:

The Stanley Parable is a first-person exploration game. You will play as Stanley, and you will not play as Stanley. You will follow a story, you will not follow a story. You will have a choice, you will have no choice. The game will end, the game will never end.

Did you get it? Me neither. The Stanley Parable has to be one of the weirdest games and also gave me an existentialist crisis. Imagine having a voiceover describing all of your actions, while you frantically try to figure out what are you supposed to do. Is there an end goal? Is there a door to escape? Or there is no escape, and that’s the whole point of the game?

Don’t get me wrong. The humor level infused in the voiceover would definitely keep anyone playing the game entertained. The numerous choices you get from making one decision keeps the game interesting as you push forward trying to reach, a….goal.

the stanley parable, bizarre indie games, indie games, indie developers, steam, steam games

There is no wrong way to play this game, so you play the way you want to. Take your time and explore your environment with your voiceover companion who might drop you hints here and there or straight up throw sass at your face.

INSIDE - A child’s worst nightmare

playdead, inside, indie games, indie games, indie developers, steam, steam games

This bizarre indie game called Inside is yet another of the many creations of Playdead.

The game starts off with the main character sliding from a small slope. No tutorials, no instructions. The game just starts.

A creepy 2D puzzle platform game, Inside, evokes a terrifying and lonely journey throughout the game. You go through creepy backgrounds, surrounded by creepy characters that you have to avoid at all cost.

playdead, inside, indie games, indie games, indie developers, steam, steam games

A nameless boy is the main character of the game, who clearly looks like he’s running away from someone, or something. This physics-based puzzle platformer will take you into the depths of the well-thought-of game journey. Dying may happen frequently in the beginning as puzzles would appear to be somewhat impossible, but they are actually lessons that will prepare you for the future advancements in the storyline. Without a shadow of a doubt, Inside is one of the best weird gaming experience out there.

PARATOPIC - Nightmare Fueled Adventure

Want a game that captures the fear of the unknown, which we as a species have struggled with ever since we started forming societies? This game will provide you with that feeling and then some.

paratopic, indie games, indie games, indie developers, steam, steam games

 

There’s no sane way to actually describe the entirety of the game. It starts with you delivering a VHS on your regular route and things go south fast. Paired with retro 3-D rendering, this adventure horror will definitely give you the creeps as you move forward, not knowing what the end destination is and not understanding how everything you go through is related.

paratopic, indie games, indie games, indie developers, steam, steam games

The soundtrack amps the creep factor to a whole new level. Everyone looks distorted and it’s apparent that it is deliberately made that way. This game offers a relatively short gameplay time, a relief in a way. Don’t let anxiety get the best of you.

HATOFUL BOYFRIEND - Birds Dating Simulator

We’ve somehow made through the entire list without putting in a Japanese influenced game. As it is widely known, Japanese game developers are known to push the boundaries of creativity to the realm of charming oddity. I mean, some of the results from those particular creative leaps did give us timeless classics such as Pokemon. And sometimes, we get a bowl of just odd. I mean really odd. You know what I’m trying to say here. Here’s the main menu screen.

hatoful boyfriend,  indie games, indie games, indie developers, steam, steam games

Here is the only Japanese influenced game entry on this list and it is by far one of the weirdest games that have ever existed: a game where you’re enrolled in a school for talented birds. Nope, you won’t be training these birds. Think more of a bird dating simulator. You, a single human student will be trying to date one of these single birds.

hatoful boyfriend,  indie games, indie games, indie developers, steam, steam games

Find your true love amongst the various avian species that you will cross paths with. Make decisions on which bird to choose. Here’s the funny thing. Everything that has been presented so far about this game will definitely sound bonkers to most readers, but oddly enough, going through the Steam reviews and you’ll find out a general mention of the plot and depth of the game.

hatoful boyfriend,  indie games, indie games, indie developers, steam, steam games

Some even cried. Either this game has the potential depth to it, or people are just bored. Hope this list shed some light into the usually ignored parts of Steam. If you’re looking for a new experience to cleanse your palate, you might want to try any one of these games. I’m sure you’ll have a “great” time.

Disclaimer: I am not responsible if you start dreaming about dating birds.

Dead Cells Let’s Play Page

Dead Cells Indie Game YouTube Playlist

Dead Cells recently released on the Nintendo Switch and this indie game shines on the hybrid console. Gameplay, graphics, and playability all come together to elevate the entire experience. Dead Cells is both incredibly addicting and challenging, a perfect blend to keep any Roguelike fan entertained. Playthrough after playthrough, the game offers a sense of accomplishment that many Roguelikes simply can’t match.

Dead Cells Gameplay on YouTube with Gigamax Games

The Nintendo Switch is the ideal console for games like Dead Cells. Quick to pick up and get into the action, Dead Cells is always ready for “one more game”. This is not a game someone will want to play before going to bed. One game can turn into a dozen because of how easy it is to get lost in this side-scrolling adventure.

Roguelike Perfection

dead cells, dead cells gameplay, dead cells game, dead cells nintendo switch, dead cells indie game, gigamax videos, gigamax youtube, gaming videos, youtube gaming

Endlessly pushing forward through the procedurally generated side-scrolling world is the goal. The game opens up with a headless adventurer searching for answers and a way off of the island they find themselves on. With no choice but to defeat the foes that stand before them, their escape is held up by danger and mystery. The standard Roguelike concept is elevated by a few stand-out mechanics that truly makes Dead Cells rise above other games like it.

dead cells, dead cells gameplay, dead cells game, dead cells nintendo switch, dead cells indie game, gigamax videos, gigamax youtube, gaming videos, youtube gaming

Dead Cells is able to give the player a truly satisfying feeling of progression. Many Roguelikes fall into the trap of offering gamers very little in the way of rewards after death. In this game, however, when a player progresses through the game, they are rewarded with permanent unlocks and modifiers. These mechanics truly create an addicting game filled with quality content.

Thank You for Watching!

Everyone here at Gigamax Games wants to thank you for watching the playlist. This gorgeous indie game isn’t going away anytime soon. If you want to see more Dead Cells gameplay, be sure to leave a comment at the bottom of this page!

No Man's Sky Next Update Adds Multiplayer and More

The developer behind the indie title No Man's Sky, Hello Games, outlined a substantial update coming to the game that will add a variety of features fans have been requesting since launch. The open world space exploration experience is about to be transformed. Hello Games called this the Next update and it will be available for free on PS4, Xbox One, and PC starting July 24th.


The biggest of all the additions making their way to the game is multiplayer, which will allow players to group up in small teams and explore the universe together. Gamers will also have the option to join up with random members from the community.

It's Finally Here

"You can help friends to stay alive, or prey on others to survive," the studio explains. "You can build tiny shelters or complex colonies that are shared for all players. Fight as a pirate or a wingman in epic space battles with friends and enemies. Race exocraft across weird alien terrains, creating race tracks and trails to share online. The character customization allows you to personalize your appearance." (https://bit.ly/2uuESrI)

No Man's Sky is also set to receive a massive visual overhaul, that according to the studio, will add "dramatically improved planetary terrain generation, ground textures, water, and clouds." Additionally, there's "also significantly more detail added to ships, NPCs, and buildings." (https://bit.ly/2uuESrI) New planetary rings and improved space visuals will be making their way into the game as well. In a dramatic move, Hello Games is letting players to explore the world in third person mode, too.

The Next update has base building in its sights along with all the other updates coming to No Mans Sky. Now, players will have the ability to build more than one base on a planet. Crafted items are now more complex and the size limitations have been reduced. On top of all that, the Next update added a couple of new base parts as well.

Last but not least, players will now be able to command freighters, which includes assembling and upgrading an entire fleet of frigates. Commanders can send them out into the universe or have them provide assistance as they explore systems. This is all done from a freighter, which behaves like a capital ship. Friends can be invited aboard the ship where they'll be able to embark on multiplayer missions from Galactic Commission Station, located on the bridge.

Darkest Dungeon Let’s Play Page

The Nintendo Switch is now home to Darkest Dungeon and besides the wacky menu system on the hybrid console, it’s extremely entertaining. This is one of those indie games that keeps on bringing people back. Known for its challenging dungeon crawling elements, the Gigamax crew wasn’t too familiar with the title. A request brought it back to the attention of Gigs and Mack so it was about time to explore the dangerous depths of Darkest Dungeons.

Darkest Dungeon Gameplay on YouTube with Gigamax Games

Caught off guard with the clumsy menu system the game uses for the Nintendo Switch, the intro to Darkest Dungeon was interesting, to say the least. After the crew got those hiccups out of the way, it was time to start slaying. Going in relatively blind, Gigs and Mack limped through a dangerous dungeon. It may not have been pretty but the Gigamax crew got the job done…. kinda.

The Future Looks Dark

Are you a fan of Darkest Dungeon? If so, be sure to leave a comment at the bottom of this page or on the video! The Gigamax crew is dying to release even more gameplay.

This will be the place to find all the latest Darkest Dungeon gameplay. Thank you all so much for taking the time to stop by this Let’s Play Page! It means the world to everyone here at Gigamax Games.

Agony on YouTube with Gigamax Games

Agony on YouTube with Gigamax Games

Agony caught the attention of gamers a couple years back when the trailer made its rounds on a bunch of social media platforms. This was where Gigs and Mack first heard about this upcoming horror adventure game. It seemed as though it was going to deliver a unique and exciting experience but what the world ended up receiving was far from expectations.

Agony, Agony on PS4, Agony on YouTube, Agony with Gigamax Games, Agony game, indie game, horror games

This game was anything but enjoyable. Screen tearing pledged the playthrough and the rough character models and the subpar world quickly eliminated any excitement surrounding Agony. Instead, gameplay turned into pure agony.

Agony Playlist on YouTube – PS4 Gameplay

Just because a game doesn’t have the best graphics doesn’t always mean its a flop. However, everything else that the game would have needed to deliver in order to overshadow its rough aesthetics fell short as well. This playlist shows off the first few minutes of Agony on PlayStation 4 and it quickly becomes clear why the game reviewed so poorly. Even though the game was a flop, the gameplay is absolutely worth investigating. It’s almost surprising that the developers were able to get away with distributing this game to the world.

You Be The Judge

Have a look for yourself, the Gigamax crew wants to know your impressions. What did you think about, Agony? Are you going to give it a try? Leave a comment at the bottom of this page or on the Agony video on YouTube
