> while the platform seems very interesting the lack of details might hold back serious developers that have to consider daily costs to run their studios. I think a more precise information, especially done before the start of the jam, would have helped you in get more interest on it. Still there's time and people can join it if you share those details within a couple of days.
> Talking for myself for example, I would really like to have spent one month in develop something customised for your platform, but it means that I have to cut on other projects, where, I am aware about the risks and costs. I might still give it a go making something small in one day, but it would be more for curiosity to test the platform more than a serious effort.
> My personal case, but I am sure it will be the same for any other professional developer, would be a loss of chance for you and for the developers as well. That's why, once again, my suggestion is to make clear the revenues, at least from the ads. Then privately, you might have some other form of agreement too, but people are always happy to know why they are investing time on making a game that will give to you an income, and maybe, one day, something to the developers (that might still not be enough to cover even the development costs).
> Sorry if my post seems a bit too harsh, but I love when people comes out with new ideas and opportunities, so I wish that everyone can benefit from that, rather than lose the chance

Hi, thanks for the feedback and sorry for delayed reply
I understand your point, I have heard it before as a feedback. We (as GAMEE) are a very young company, we are still building the platform. Obviously we want to open it to 3rd party developers and at that point, all the info should be available, including the monetization. That being said, we are still working on the platform itself (we started testing monetization with interestial ads only last month on 10% of our users).
The main goal of this Contest is to introduce GAMEE platform to developers + get feedback. Also with the best games, we would want to cooperate more and eventually launch those games on our platform. But that would be about individual deals with individual developers / studios. The incentive to submit your game for this contest should be the prizes + possibility of future cooperation.
I know that to evaluate the ROI of such possibility, you need more data. Unfortunately we don't have them yet - we don't know exactly how much can a game earn at our platform and thus we don't have any rev-shares models .
So what can developer gain by the cooperation?
- Exposure - we have 10M MAU (monthly active users) across multiple platforms
- Early access - you can be one of first 3rd party developers to work with us, one of the first to have the monetization once we have it ready. If we go big (and we plan to) you go big as well.
- Money - eventually, we can discuss possible solutions before the monetization is available, again case-to-case basis.
I hope this helps answer some of your questions.
