AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BrightLocker, a recently launched first-of-its-kind platform hailed by MMOs.com as “Steam on steroids” is now enabling anyone to own a stake in the company thanks to a new crowdfunding campaign via StartEngine. The platform provides gamers a revolutionary way to connect with developers and secure exclusive content, incredible interactions and rewards.
The crowdfunding opportunity provides investors with a range of exclusive perks and warrant coverage levels depending on the tier of financial commitment. Perks are tied into the platform and include Badges, Gold and premium subscription packages. The campaign will run for a limited time on StartEngine, a crowdfunding platform dedicated to giving fans the opportunity to invest in companies they love and help shape the way they develop.
BrightLocker, which launched in July, is a revolutionary platform that enables gamers to connect with their favorite developers and gain exclusive access to upcoming games in ways never before seen in the gaming industry. BrightLocker has already seen significant momentum in its first month now boasting 25 signed development partners including Descendant Games with Descent Underground – the follow-up to the legendary and multi-million selling Descent franchise – and Edge Case Games’ award-winning Fractured Space. And there are many more to come in the weeks and months ahead.
BrightLocker CEO Ruben Cortez said: “Fostering the relationships and interaction between players and developers is at the very heart of what BrightLocker stands for, and crowdfunding fits perfectly with that ethos.”
He added: “Oculus Rift raised a huge amount from individuals on Kickstarter who then never got any return when Facebook acquired them for $2 billion. Our philosophy is not only to have a player and developer friendly platform that revolutionizes gaming but to also ensure the fans of BrightLocker will participate financially in the upside of our success.”
StartEngine CEO Howard Marks added: “At StartEngine our mission is to help entrepreneurs achieve their dreams, and we are doing that by democratizing access to capital. I am very proud to be helping these companies lead the way.”
Created by a team of games industry veterans with more than 100 years’ experience across companies such as Electronic Arts, Activision and Sony, BrightLocker offers developers a unique, ready-made audience of gamers who are looking for fresh game experiences.
Gamers receive exclusive content, such as unique in-game items, physical rewards and more while also enjoying revolutionary and unique studio interaction. This interaction comes in all varieties, from forum chats with developers to livestreams of games while they're being made. This unique proposition was described by MMORPG.com as “a service that connects the capabilities and functions of Kickstarter, Twitch, Social Media, and private forums all in one place.”
