Just received an offer for a non-exclusive license

  • It's the first time this ever happened to me, so I'm quite...dazzled.

    I recently finished a game (Penguin Slider, can be played at Scirra Arcade). and sent it to some gaming portals

    One of them just answered, offering me 500$ for a non-exclusive license.

    I would like to have some advice regarding this. Is it a good offer? Should I ask for revenue share based on how many plays the game have?

    Thanks!

  • That's the average rate for non-exclusive. You can try negotiating up to $1,000, just depends how much you value your game. Exclusive average at $2,000.

    For revenue share, your best bet is to just do it yourself by using cocoonjs+ads and keep 100% of revenue.

  • pcfernandesjr how long did it take from the time you sent it to them to the time you got the offer? For your first game $500 is not that bad at all.

    Working at night during 1 and 1/2 week.

    Yeah, I did a quick search around, and 's reply sort of confirms that. It seems like $500 is slightly above the average price practiced.

    Thanks for the attention guys!

  • Sorry I meant how long did it take them to make an offer after you submitted your game?

  • Congratulations on your offer

  • That's a brillant start, congratulations!

    Oh, i see. After uploading the game on Gamejolt, I sent some e-mails to gaming portals. It took 5 days to have a reply from one of them.

    Congratulations on your offer

    Thanks Tom! And thanks to Scirra for making this possible to me

    That's a brillant start, congratulations!

    Thanks Kenny!

    I selected some websites from this list and contacted them.

  • Don't mean to hijack the thread, but what is the going rate now for a non-exclusive HTML5 license? I once got $500 per license, but now I'm told it is about $100. What are you guys experiencing?

  • Around $400 seems to be the going rate from publishers I work with.
