WHY PUBLISH WITH US
We provide holistic support to the games and studios we represent.
We understand game developers.
Heard of horror stories where game publishers sign on games and just leave them to rot? This happens as some game publishing studios are run by business people who are numbers driven and don’t go through the trenches with their developers. Being veteran game developers ourselves, we understand the needs of other game developers and how best to serve them. When you sign up with Spiral Up, you sign up with an army of professionals dedicated to the success of your ‘baby’!
Need funding for your game?
Have a great game concept but not enough money to go all the way? No worries! We can provide development funds to promising game development teams who already have a demo and pitch deck. Just submit your game here and we will get back to you within a couple of weeks.
We are your gateway to the world.
We are your gateway to the huge Chinese market.
We are experts at community and PR management.
Communication is key to attracting gamers, turning them into customers and building a strong community that transcends cultural differences. To achieve this, game developers must put in the effort to communicate with them on a regular basis – be it to update them about the game’s development progress, to consult their opinions on new game features or to respond to their feedback and criticism.
But we understand that you are too busy to handle everything on your own, which is why we can step in to help. We will communicate with your fans on Steam, Discord, Facebook and Twitter to keep them engaged and build a strong community for you. We will reply to reviews – both positive and negative – eloquently. You will be kept in the loop what gamers think about your game so that you make informed decisions on your future iterations.
For the Chinese market, we would cover Weibo and QQ. Working with us gives you an added advantage in communicating to the Chinese gamers. We understand the culture intimately and can help you avoid tricky PR disasters caused by cultural differences. As with everything we do, we do everything else for you so that you can focus on game development.
We provide comprehensive marketing support
We localize your game for the key markets.
Playtesting, quality assurance, game design advisory and technical support.
Very often, game developers get into a situation where they lose sight of direction and what they originally set out to achieve. It can be very daunting when you are alone, trying to create your own game and wondering how gamers would receive it. Is your concept good enough? Is your game loop fun and addictive? Is your combat system intuitive? Are your graphics snazzy enough? How many bugs are there lurking in your game? The list goes on. We understand how you feel, because we are game developers ourselves. When Spiral Up publishes your game, we also become your playtester, QA, technical and game design consultant. You no longer have to shoot in the dark, for you will have a professional team who has your best interests at heart. We will spot the bugs in your game and give you the best feedback you need to make a great game.
