Gamasutra reports that SquareEnix has announced opening their Collective up to make direct investments into select projects. This means that smaller developers (including mobile developers) can pitch their ideas to SquareEnix and potentially get funded directly.
“Since launching a year ago we’ve met some great teams with projects that they didn’t want to take to crowdfunding, and where an investment of up to $250,000 would have really helped them get to launch in the best shape,” said the platform’s creator and project lead Phil Elliott. “So we’ll be exploring options with teams over the course of the year as we continue to look for new ways to support new talent coming into the industry.”
$250,000 can go a long way to helping out a project. If you are interested, you can contact the Collective Team at[email protected].
