  7. You can grab 250+ HTML5 casual games totally for free here: http://publishers.softgames.com
  8. Sure, we'Re always interested in new, high quality content. Just send a mail to games@softgames.com.
  9. Please see my other post in general topic area to avoid double posting. Thanks.
  10. The number is taken from several long term trials we've made with a few selected developers where we paid a fixed fee + revenue share on the InGame Ads. An example is GTC HeatCity. Very soon we'll release the learnings from those trials for every developer, so that they will have the same chance to make this money as well. Just wait a few more weeks
  11. We provided the guest post to Gamesbrief. They published it - no idea why they switched numbers.
  12. Hey guys, why the link and title doesnt fit - I cannot explain. It was a guest post by us but published by Gamesbrief. How to make the 30k is explained: It's a mixture between all oppertunities given to developers: selling excl. + non-excl licenses + self publishing with ingame ads. Check the games on our portal to understand what titles we prefer and for what we pay good money. I guess we had this discussion already
  13. Ready my thoughts on how to make money from the rising market of HTML5 games on our blog InsideHTML5Games.com: http://www.insidehtml5games.com/html5-games/blog/how-developerts-can-make-up-to-30000-usd-from-html5-games/
  14. As also our competitors reading in this forum, I will not share too much internal information. I hope u understand. Anyway from my knownledge e.g. the HTML5 game "Zombies can't Jump" (http://www.softgames.com/games/zombies-cant-jump) was a huge success either on the web and in the stores.
  15. This is an example of the average range of what publishers pay for a non excl. license. The price always depends on game quality, size and other criteria as I already mentioned above. The chart is taken from this report: www.developereconomics.com/reports/q1-2014/
  16. Hi Ozdy, thanks for your questions. Let me answer them below: 1. We pay according to game quality, size and other criteria. I strongly believe that SOFTGAMES pays the market average for HTML5 games. We pay extremely fast, our QA is detailed but fair and we offer a lot additional help. Those are some key benefits which are far above average. 2. HTML5 games are actively competing with native games. Therefore and in order to bring HTML5 games to the next stage we need to take care the content we get fits to our quality standards. Further is the HTML5 games market still very young and SOFTGAMES needs to adapt to changes fast. We're operating on the long term and this may result in complex API requirements to update our 250 games strong catalogue easily and fast. 3. We only do exclusive licensing now, so we own all the rights incl. the right to sub-license the content to 3rd parties. Best, Alexander
