Square Enix’s community-focused initiative called Collective, in which the company plans to bring together both creators and the video game community to bring gaming concepts to market, has officially launched.
The service was announced in October of last year, and pitches can be submitted now that the three project trial phase as completed.
World War Machine by Tuque Games, the first project out of the initiative, will start a crowdfunding campaign later in April.
“The pilot phase went really well, we learned so much during the test month and the teams we worked with; Tuque Games, Kitfox Games and Ruffian Games, have given great and useful feedback,” said Collective’s project lead Phil Elliott.
“Now it’s over to you as we open up the platform on an ongoing basis, and see what sort of ideas come in, from developers all around the world and what gamers think of those ideas.”
Pitches sent to Square Enix will be publicized on Mondays, and the firm’s back catalog of IP will also be opened at some point to allow developers to submit ideas based on said IPs.
Thanks, GI International.
