When making investments on the Gambitious Investment Portal you will be investing in individual game projects under the same contractual terms as Gambitious, Devolver, (and often our individual founding partners).
You are NOT making an equity investment in the development studio, but you are investing through a contract with the Publisher (Royalty Purchase Agreement) to share in royalties generated from sales of a specific project, for a period of 5 years.
Investors in Gambitious games enjoy a Preferred Return. 1st. priority to investors.
After the Preferred Return is satisfied, the proportional Royalty Rates between investors, publisher and developer are paid as a 2nd. priority.
The Projected Return associated with the title is illustrated at the bottom of the cash flow projections schedule.
Project investing requires three simple steps:
At this point, your investment is classified as a Commitment and added to the project’s funding total
Your investment may be used for Development/Production, Testing/QA, Language Localization, PR Marketing activities.
Projects requiring development funds are advanced to the Game Studio upon approval of Milestones by Gambitious 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.
You can make investments for the projects that are under the header New Projects at the New Projects Page.
You can not invest in projects under the header Funded Projects. These projects are a 100% committed/invested. Gambitious informs you when new projects are added to the platform.
You can find our financial projections for a title at the bottom of any Project Page. The table illustrates projected Investor Economics for this game. You can click on the section headers to find more information on how the table works.
The financial projections provided are for illustration purposes only and most certainly will vary from actual results. Investors should not rely on the projections to make an investment decision.
Approximately 90 days from the date in which the title is released for sale, investors will receive the initial Preferred Return payout. 100% of available proceeds from sales are paid to investors until the Preferred Return is satisfied. Subsequent payouts due to investors are accrued quarterly or until sufficient capital is accumulated to justify a payout.
