Indie games agency Bandello announces new LaunchPad PR service for developers
Prepared for take off
From middleware to funding and consulting, the depth of the ecosystem is frankly staggering.
Still, finding the right partners to work with can be a more difficult task. At least, Danish outfit Bandello wears its heart on its sleeve, with its tag 'We Love Indies'.
Backing the little guys
Calling itself 'The agency that helps indie game developers', it sits in the often messy gap between developers and publishers, helping out in terms of representation, funding and business strategy.
And building on that foundation, it's just added PR to its skillset.
Available independently from its other services, the option - which is called LaunchPad - has been running in a beta form for the past month with selected developers including Full Control (Tactical Soldier), macbody games (1916) and House on Fire (Neon Zone).
Light the blue touchpaper
Now it's open for all studios - from mobile to PC and console - as long as you're an indie and you pass the Bandello quality bar.
Significantly, LaunchPad isn't a self service operation, but in keeping with its overall focus on working with the best, the company says it will only be accepting products it believes in.
In terms of options, there are three packages.
The Basic Rocket comes in at $95 for a straight forward press release service and 3 days of feedback. The Standard Rocket is $195, which provides extended pre and post-announcement support, while the $495 Premium Pocket is the complete 30 day package with additional press follow up and reporting.
