Huawei has announced that AppGallery, its app distribution platform with more than 500 million monthly active users and 2 million registered developers, has launched a dedicated funding program for games.
Serving more than 170 countries and territories across 18 app categories, AppGallery has become one of the world's top three app marketplaces, providing a global platform for developers to publish and develop their games.
Huawei has announced plans to offer a €30,000 credit pool for indie game community purchases, VIP technical support, and a new "Indie Games" showcase on AppGallery, among other support.
All games published on AppGallery through the Unity distribution portal between November 19 and December 14 will be eligible for the special incentive including:
- 85% IAP revenue share for game developers for the first 2 years.
- VIP technical support during the on-boarding process.
- Top 30 indie games will receive Huawei Ad Platform credit worth €1,000 and support to launch their first campaign.
- Top indie games will also be featured on a special 'Indie Game' slot on the AppGallery store.
Jaime Gonzalo, vice president of Huawei's Consumer Mobile Services in Europe, described the initiative as “an important step in Huawei's continued commitment and investment in the developer community. ”
“The mobile games industry has shown incredible growth over the last few years and we are delighted to be able to support more Indie developers and studios in bringing their games to the market,” he said.
