As game developers and publishers seek to further monetize the industry, one needs look no further than licensing as a viable way to do this. Buying and selling licenses for your games is a well known way to generate revenue but the industry is still in its infancy. We empower developers by reforming the licensing models available to them while expanding their reach globally. We provide more flexibility and creative control to the game makers, while introducing them to publishers across the world eager to distribute their games.
Whether you seek to expand the reach of an existing title, port your game to another platform, or find funding for something new, Game Licenses can help make that happen. Making your titles available in our listings is the most efficient way to have your ideas be seen by the decision makers in the industry and thus increase your chances of striking a deal.
Typically large publishers handle all aspects of distribution for the developer including distribution in foreign countries. The problem is that these large publishers generally mitigate risk by limiting themselves tp only distributing well known brands. So the independent developer who has fresh new ideas is rarely given a chance. This is all about to change, as GameLicenses.com puts developers directly in touch with publishers while providing the tools and contacts to rollout their IP globally.
Below are just some of the licensing options developers have available to them. While each license helps developers consider the many options that are available to them, each one is also completely customizable so developers can create their own game specific licenses with ease.

Many game developers have focused solely on retail distribution, have they considered online distribution? How about localization to other foreign markets such as Spain, Germany, France or Korea? Why not make your game available to be ported to other platforms such as the iPhone or the Nintendo DS? All these are further ways to expand the possibilities of earning money for your hard work and are part of the Game Licenses licensing infrastructure.
Our licensing model means the developer can choose which licenses they want to make available, how much each license costs, and fully customize each while keeping in mind prior obligations and previous licensing agreements. Developers can opt to create an auction for each license, set a fixed price, or direct the interested parties to message them for further information. Our licensing system is the most robust in the industry.
