Launched in 2012, Gambitious BV is the first global crowd-financing platform exclusively for games. With a mission to create and foster a sustainable ecosystem for independent game creation and publishing, Gambitious utilizes its evolving set of creative financing tools and techniques to get more great game titles funded, produced, and successfully released.
The company’s publishing label, Gambitious Digital Entertainment, was created in 2014 to offer professional, developer-friendly production, marketing, and distribution services in order to ensure a timely return to investors and developers on the projects.
Gambitious has successfully established partnerships and released its titles on Steam, XB1, PS4, Sony Vita, GoG, Humble, and the Mac App Store as well as a number of emerging global digital distributors.
IP and creative control remain with developers at all times, including all PR and marketing activities in addition to the games themselves. We’ve permanently checked our ego’s and do not wish to exert artistic control, but rather want to support them in any and all ways needed (and none that aren’t) on a project-by-project basis.
We realize that talk is cheap and so we like to prove our rhetoric as quickly as possible. Our model works, and it works for all involved - from the artists to management to project financiers - through a system of transparent, simple contractual arrangements.
We invest alongside our outside investors, we work alongside our developers, and we bridge the gap between the two for mutual success.
The publishing company operates like the indies we work with: lean, nimble, and progressive with low overhead. We rely on a global team of professionals with experience in all aspects of project management, production, finance, PR and marketing, localization, QA, platform partner relations, distribution, merchandising, and the occasional breakdancing.
