Square Enix Announces Pilot Program Launch of Indie Showcase, “Collective”
Back in October 2013, Square Enix announced a new partnership program with Indiegogo that would help get indie games funded and promoted through the popular funding site and community support.
Today the JRPG company revealed the launch of their pilot for this program, called Collective. Three indie companies and their IPs–Ruffian Games (based in Dundee, working on Game of Glens), Kitfox Games (based in Montreal, working on Moon Hunters) and Tuque Games (also based in Montreal, working on World War Machine)–have been chosen to participate in the pilot, which will run for 28 days.
The community will choose which projects they want to see go through to an Indiegogo crowdfunding process. Projects which successfully raise funds may also find support from Square Enix through the development process, and assistance in distributing the final project across leading digital channels once completed. However, the studio can choose how much or how little Square actually adds them in the developmental process.
