Claimony has recently teamed up with various Indie studios in order to feature their games as rewards, they revealed today.
“Indie developers struggle to get their gem in the hands of gamers. That’s a fact,” they stated in the official press release. “Gamers love rewards, especially hard-earned ones. That’s a fact. Claimony connects the dots and guide gamers to the Indie gems by the fine art of achievement hunting. That’s soon to be a fact.”
So those who love collecting various achievements anyway will soon have even more reason to do so, as they will be able to get some indie games in return.
Philip Asher, Marketing Director at Trendy Entertainment, commented on the partnerships, stating, “We believe this is a innovative and non-obtrusive way to expose our games to our core audience.”
Here’s the details of how Claimony works, as well as details on a new contest they will be running:
So how does it work?
Claimony let users collect credits for unlocking achievements in Steam games. These credits can be used to claim various rewards from partners who want to showcase their products. Some developers, such as Amplitude Studios, have also created special Claimony quests based on achievements in the Endless series to further engage with the users.
In order to provide maximum value to partners, Claimony showcases a limited number of games at any given time. No more getting lost in the Steam jungle.
To further engage gamers, Claimony will host a contest featuring all participating Indie games. The winner will get even more games to play from partner GamersGate and all participants will enjoy double points in all games!
