Gamejacket offer new revenue model for casual games
Gamejacket is a new company that offer an innovative way for casual games developers to generate revenue.
Developers upload the game to GameJacket and get back a wrapped file. That wrapped file is freely distributable and hosted on the GameJacket servers. When the game is played, GameJacket’s delivers ads around it (they are a little unclear as to whether this is pre-roll, post-roll or in a box alongside the game), and they guarantee a CPM of $0.50.
It could be a very interesting service for casual developers, particularly of Flash games. However, major portals may be wary of a title that relies on hosting on third party servers, and with display advertising budgets under pressure, it is a tough time to launch such a service.
But it’s good to see new and innovative ways of helping casual games developers generate revenue from their titles.
