Green Throttle Games announces new developer program and game portal

Game publisher Green Throttle Games today announced its new developer program and game platform, both of which are designed to help developers access users on Android tablets and smartphones.

Aside from the developer SDK, Green Throttle is also offering its proprietary Atlas Bluetooth controller for developers who currently use software suites like Corona Labs SDK, Marmalade SDK, Unity and Amazon’s development platform. The publisher tells us the first 100 developers in each category who qualify for the developer program will receive two Atlas controllers and extra support.

Developers that partner with Green Throttle will be able to act as affiliates and thereby have access to extra revenue outside of Google Play or Amazon, as they’ll be able to provide a link in their game for users to purchase an Atlas controller (which sells for $49.95). Developers interested in the affiliate program can contact Green Throttle directly for more specifics about revenue sharing.

Green Throttle’s program seems geared towards developers who are targeting core gamers, as most casual users aren’t likely to throw down cash for an accessory like a game controller for mobile devices. As a result, it’s not surprising to hear that developer CMUNE is one of the first partners in this program, working on a controller-friendly version of its free-to-play web shooter UberStrike. Green Throttle also revealed that nWay (the developer behind the upcoming cross-platform RPG ChronoBlade) is also taking part in the program.
