FAQ Section 6 - Developer information
Question 6.1 - Why list with Guide Dog Games?
Because high quality games are expensive to create. If not expensive
in terms of money, then expensive in terms of time and effort. We'd
like you to get paid for that time and effort, and we'd like you to
spend your time making games instead of worrying about things like
Question 6.2 - What services does Guide Dog Games provide?
The general services we provide to all games are:
- We handle the purchases, dealing with refunds, and the other
problems that invariably arise when dealing with money and people
trying to buy things online.
- We provide online update utilities to help you maintain and keep
your game current.
- We provide statistics and information on who'd purchased your games
and who is playing them.
- We provide several different kinds of anti-piracy features that
you can use to protect your game.
Our goal is to make it easy for developers to distribute their games,
so they can spend more time developing and less time dealing with

Question 6.5 - Do I have to create a company to distribute my games?
No - you can list as a person if needed. Your name will show up as
the company name in your listing.
Question 6.6 - How much does it cost?
We try to provide a lot of services to make life easier for developers,
but we can't do it for free. Our initial pricing is still in flux,
but our current cut is expected to be 35% of the gross revenue for your
game, with a five dollar minimum price. This means that a sale of a
$10.00 expansion pack would net the developer $6.50. Keep in mind that
we're eating the credit card processing fees out of our cut.
Our current plan for distributions is to either write a check or do
some form of direct deposit on a monthly basis.
