Square Collective opens up after successful pilot phase

Square Collective experiences a successful pilot.

Square Collective experiences a successful pilot.

The Square Collective is now open for all developers to submit their original game ideas, thanks to a successful pilot phase. Now teams can access the site’s CMS and upload pitches which, after being submitted and checked against the submission criteria, could end up being published on the platform.

Phil Elliott, project lead, stated, “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. 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.”

Collective is open starting today with the plan to publish pitches every Monday, beginning when the first pitches are received. If you’re curious on the full submission criteria you can see them here.

Tuque Games is the first of the teams that came through the pilot phase with their title World War Machine. They will begin a crowdfunding campaign through a Collective/Indiegogo campaign page at the end of this month.

Said Elliott, “World War Machine obviously caught the eye of a lot of people. With 90% of those who voted on the project indicating potential backing through crowdfunding, we’re very happy that Tuque Games decided to accept our offer for continued support on Indiegogo. We’ll let you know when the campaign page is live.”

What new ideas will this project see come to life?
