Donald Trump’s Hair Escape, Wild West Mars and Other Winners of First Six Semi-Final Rounds Now Battle It Out for Chance to Become First Game Funded and Developed on BrightLocker’s Crowdpublishing Platform
Beginning today, players using crowd publishing site BrightLocker will vote to help determine which game idea will move forward into full production. This final round, which runs through early August, takes the top five games from each of six Semi Final rounds, plus a few wildcard games, and creates a Grand Final round with more than 30 of the best games submitted and selected by our community.
At the end of this Grand Final Round, BrightLocker will develop the winning game using its innovative approach to crowdfunding.
On BrightLocker, gamers help select which games get considered for full development and production by casting votes. Each vote has a cash value and the full monetary equivalent of every single vote cast, whether your favorite game gets selected or not, gets contributed to the winning game as part of its crowdfunding campaign. There are no wasted votes, ever.
“Through six rounds of Semi Final voting, more than 600,000 votes have been cast. Each vote, worth $.01 each, along with all the votes cast during the Grand Final round, will be used to prefund the winning game,” said Ruben Cortez, CEO, BrightLocker. “Gamers can earn votes as part of our achievement system or even purchase votes if they like, and vote with confidence knowing that all votes cast, whether earned or bought, go towards funding the winning game idea.”
On BrightLocker gamers play “The Game of Making Games,” where not only are game creation, selection, and development made into a game on their own, but the entire experience turns crowdfunding into something fun, interactive and engaging.
A gamer can earn thousands of votes just by participating on the BrightLocker platform, and cast those votes for their favorite games knowing that BrightLocker is making a financial commitment with each vote cast.
