Chillingo founders Joe Wee and Chris Byatte announced jointly on EA's blog the launch of a new indie developer program that highlights quality independently developed mobile titles through the company's third party mobile publishing services. The program is called 100% Indie and its core is located at www.100percentindie.com.
This portal will offer tools, articles and information to "encourage and motivate developers to create incredible games." 100% Indie will also offer a "brand new way" for indie developers to connect with Samsung and "earn unparalleled revenue share opportunities."
The revenue sharing scheme they speak of will give indie developers 100 percent of the revenue from game sales for the first six months after joining the program. They are also "guaranteed higher than standard revenue share rates until March 2015." Here's the fine print of how revenue sharing will work:
"Developers will receive 100% revenue from March 4, 2013 – September 3, 2013, 90% revenue share from September 4, 2013 – March 3, 2014, 80% revenue share from March 4, 2014 – March 3, 2015, and after March 4, 2015 on Samsung Apps, developers will begin receiving 70% revenue share. Revenue share will be net of any applicable payment gateway and/or carrier charges."
