Connecting Developers with Gamers in a Revolutionary Way

Invest in BrightLocker

BrightLocker is a revolutionary platform that enables gamers to connect with their favorite developers and gain exclusive access and interaction as they make upcoming games.


BrightLocker offers developers a unique, ready-made audience of gamers who are looking for fresh game experiences. The BrightLocker platform was created by industry veterans who were deeply involved with the development of the Sony Playstation Network, the Electronic Arts global online platforms and networks, and such award-winning and revolutionary games as Ultima Online, Star Wars: The Old Republic, and World of Warcraft.


By offering gamers fun, unique insights and collaboration opportunities during production, developers can encourage gamers to subscribe to their channel. In turn, BrightLocker allows developers to gain valuable pre-launch feedback and revenue.


Gamers receive exclusive content, such as unique in game items, physical rewards and more whilst 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. 


In addition, gamers can engage the development team directly, as they have the opportunity to influence the design of an upcoming game via BrightLocker’s Guided Choices™ system. This system enables all gamers to vote and provide input into crucial decisions a game development team is making.  


We've gamified the process, too! BrightLocker rewards gamers at every step of the way, from concept to launch. This keeps engagement high, ensuring that developers always have the attention of their fans.


We're seeking your investment so that we can continue to expand the BrightLocker platform by drawing in more developers and regionalizing our content. Invest in BrightLocker today, and become a part of the revolutionary future of gaming!

Where Other Social and Funding Platforms for Games Fall Short

Especially over the past several years, it's become clear that gamers and developers alike demand increased engagement with one another. However, that engagement has been largely fractured, with fund-raising platforms providing engagement pre-production and social media services providing engagement post-production.


Given that the typical duration of game development is anywhere between two to four years, this leaves a rather large hole. That's where BrightLocker comes in. 


We provide the link between pre- and post-production that both developers and gamers have been missing. Doing this allows gamers more access to the game development cycle than they've ever had before, and it provides developers with a new way to monetize and perfect their creations during the course of production.

Crowdfunding

Platforms like Kickstater and IndieGoGo have become popular ways in which gamers can become involved with their favorite developers. They allow developers to raise capital during the pre-production phase, while offering a stake in the development cycle to gamers.

The Missing Link

However, those crowdfunding platforms don't provide true continuous engagement. Oftentimes, indie developers will have to devise their own fundraising platforms to generate additional capital after the initial crowdfunding campaign has been completed.

Social Media

Whether its through Twitch, YouTube or other platforms, gamers have demonstrated they have an interest in continued engagement with developers post-production. By serving as the missing link, BrightLocker can bridge the gap of the extensive development cycle.

BrightLocker: Providing the Missing Link in the Game Development Cycle

Having direct access to developers is something that's becoming increasingly popular with gamers. Until BrightLocker, though, there's never been a platform that allows this level of engagement to exist during the development cycle itself. Simply put, we're able to provide gamers (and developers) with what they really want: a fully transparent development cycle!

Total Engagement

While platforms like Kickstarter do provide developers with the opportunity to engage their backers through updates, this level of engagement is ultimately rather passive. BrightLocker turns all of this on its head by gamifying engagement between developers and gamers.


BrightLocker solves a number of problems facing developers and gamers alike by:


  • Providing a means of engaging and growing an audience of core gamers
  • Offering a stream for raising funds throughout development
  • Keeping gamers engaged with on-going rewards and bonuses
  • Providing a means of inexpensively conducting product research

 

True Interactivity

The big benefit that BrightLocker offers is true interactivity. Our platform allows for developers and gamers to directly interact with one another. Naturally, this allows developers to grow their audience throughout the development cycle, building a bigger buzz for their creations than ever possible before.


But, this interactivity offers more benefits than that. By consulting directly with gamers, developers can gain incredible insight into what is and isn't working with their creations. This on-the-fly feedback is incredibly valuable, and it's something that developers would otherwise have to pay a significant sum to generate through a different source.

BrightLocker is the future of interaction between gamers, developers, and the amazing games that bring them together.

What BrightLocker Does for Developers

When it comes to engaging gamers and fans during the development cycle, there's no denying that the options facing developers are fractured at present. 


By providing the missing link, BrightLocker permits developers to engage gamers and fans throughout the development lifecycle and beyond. 


Because of this, developers who utilize the BrightLocker platform, including the many who are already on board, enjoy four key benefits.

Engagement

BrightLocker allows developers to offer fun rewards to their fans. These rewards can take the form of anything from exclusive game content to behind-the-scenes live chats, video streams and so much more!

Growth

Our integrated sharing tools allow developers to continuously grow their audience. In addition, the gameified experience we provide gamers encourages them to constantly share content and interact with one another.

Monetization

Our platform allows developers to keep upward of 90% of the funds that their games generate. Simply put, the revenue benefits for developers are real.

Validation

Guided Choices™ allows developers to gather real-time feedback from gamers. In addition, on-going interaction with gamers and fans allows developers to constantly test what they're creating. 

What BrightLocker Does for Gamers

BrightLocker has been designed from the ground up to provide developers with the funds, information and engagement they need to make the game-development process a success. 


But, this is only possible if BrightLocker is able to provide a platform that consistently excites gamers and fans of individual developers and projects. 


That's why we've focused on providing gamers with the three things they want most...

Exclusivity

BrightLocker allows gamers unprecedented access to games from the early stages of development onward. By following and subscribing to developer channels, gamers can gain access to exclusive rewards and even early access to games currently under development.

Influence

For the first time in gaming history, gamers can offer developer feedback via our revolutionary Guided Choices™system. They can help a developer make their next major hit by offering feedback on everything from character design to weapon choices and everything in between!

Interactivity

But, what's truly unique for gamers is the level of interactivity they can experience. Not only can gamers talk to one another about upcoming projects, they can also participate in polls, video chats and live streams with developers, all while earning digital currency and XP.

How BrightLocker Makes Money

1. Developers offer rewards and experiences to gamers, either as micro-transactions or as part of a subscription.

2. Gamers buy these rewards and experiences using USD or our own platform currency, known as Gold.

3. We keep from 5% to 15% of all revenue a developer makes using our platform. Developers pay for transaction fees separately.

                                                BrightLocker makes a commission on every purchase or subscription transaction that occurs on our platform.

A Look at Games Already Using the BrightLocker Platform

At present, BrightLocker has over a dozen games hosted on the platform that come from some truly exceptional indie game studios. But, these games are just the start, as we're bringing more and more developers into the fold on a weekly basis that are excited about the unique benefits that BrightLocker affords.


And, it doesn't matter what kind of game a developer is seeking to create. BrightLocker is entirely platform agnostic and already features games of any conceivable genre from MMOs and shooters to racers and mobile games! Below, you can take a peek at a few of the games we're most excited about.

Descent: Underground

From the Austin-based independent studio Descendant Studios comes the

officially licensed prequel to the successful Descent series of games: Descent: Underground.


This exciting game combines first-person shooter action with six-degrees of freedom vehicular movement. In the game, players command combat spacecraft in high-stakes battles for control of warren-like asteroid mines.


Learn more about Descent: Underground on BrightLocker.

Fractured Space

Fractured Space is a 5-v-5, team-based space combat game from

UK-based Edge Case Games. Battles are fought in gigantic capital ships and with the intensity of a shooter and the big-picture thinking of a strategy game. 


Originally launched on Steam Early Access in November 2014 to critical and commercial success, Fractured Space is currently available for PC on

BrightLocker.


Learn more about Fractured Space on BrightLocker.

Life Is Feudal: MMO

From Moscow-based Bitbox Studio comes Life is Feudal: MMO. This game is a hardcore sandbox RPG that's set in a realistic medieval fictional world.


Currently in the closed-beta stage, Life is Feudal invites players to dive into a living, breathing and ever-evolving world where they can carve out an area of land into a modest home. All of this is in preparation for large kingdom-to-kingdom trading and economics, huge siege battles against foes and so much more!


Learn more about Life is Feudal: MMO on BrightLocker.

Legends of the Brawl

Combining the best parts of over-the-top action platformers and co-op mission games, Legends of the Brawl serves up a new take on multiplayer mayhem. It's been created by the award-winning AAA developers and coding vets at Dark Tonic Studios.


The 4-player co-op 3D action brawler features quick-play missions accompanied by plenty of in-game shenanigans.


Learn more about Legends of the Brawl on BrightLocker.

Nightmarchers

Nightmarchers is an open world, post-apocalyptic RPG shooter where you tap into the power of the spirit world to become a demigod and clear Oahu of the army that has taken control. Now it’s up to you to work with the survivors, find favor of the gods, choose your skills and weapons, and remake the island in your own way.


Learn more about Nightmarchers on Brightlocker.

The BrightLocker Investment Opportunity

The team behind BrightLocker understands the gaming industry and the tremendous opportunity it affords to any investor. We understand this well, because our executive team possesses over 100 years of combined experience with some of the biggest developers out there, from Activision Blizzard to Electronic Arts to Bioware and everything in between.

An Ever-Expanding Market

The gaming market is one of the most rapidly expanding industries in all of the entertainment industry.

Additionally, the industry is currently experiencing about 6.2% compounded annual growth rate (CAGR), or about $6.7 billion of new market growth every year!


In the years to come, the number of gamers and total value of the market is only expected to increase. We believe BrightLocker is uniquely poised to capitalize on the expansion of the gaming industry and interest in it. We're able to provide gamers and developers with want they really want: increased engagement, interactivity, development transparency and exclusivity.
