When making investments on the Investment portal, you will be investing in individual game projects alongside us, the publisher, under the same contractual terms. You are investing through a Royalty Purchase Agreement that entitles you to your pro-rata share in the revenues generated from sales for a period of 5 years from launch.
- First Priority: Investors in Good Shepherd games enjoy a Preferred Return.
- Second Priority: After the Preferred Return is satisfied, the proportional Royalty Rates between investors, publisher and developer are paid.
We only partner with the most promising indie developers to create and publish viable video game that we believe in and we know gamers will want to play. Our track record of best-selling, award-winning games supports this. We take it a step further and personally invest in our games alongside you because we feel confident in our projects.
Project investing requires three simple steps:
- Pick a game project and select the amount you would like to invest
- Follow instructions for providing information required for the investment contract - Royalty Purchase Agreement (RPA)
- Confirm receipt of copy of fully executed contract (RPA)
- Wire funds to Good Shepherd
Projects requiring development funds are advanced to the Game Studio upon approval of Milestones by Good Shepherd Producers. Milestone approval generally means the developer is reasonably on schedule and delivering the various assets of the game as agreed to and to our Producers' satisfaction. Prior to releasing the game, capital is used for language localization, testing and pr/marketing activities. In some cases, preliminary marketing and PR can begin as early as a year ahead of the expected launch date.
Good Shepherd will make every effort to realize its objectives and thereby minimize the risks. Nevertheless, there is no guarantee that Good Shepherd can successfully implement and implement these objectives. As an investor, it is necessary not only to realize, but also to accept that despite all previous successes and all efforts that Good Shepherd will make to prevent this, your deposit may be lost in whole or in part. Therefore, you should ask yourself whether you are willing to accept the risk of such a loss. If you are not willing to accept that risk or can not bear that loss, investing through Good Shepherd is not suitable for you. Results achieved in the past by Good Shepherd are indicative but not a guarantee of future results.
