Publish with Mastiff
We’re actively seeking compelling, creative games to publish.
We’ll take care of the heavy lifting (sales, marketing, financing, operations) so you can focus on making your game.
We are open to many different deal structures, including development funding. And no, we won’t take control of your IP.
See below for details on submitting your pitch.
Let’s do something incredible together!
We understand the work developers put into their games, and treat each game with the care and passion we’d put into a game we developed ourselves.
Here are some of the things we do for our partners:
We offer marketing guarantees and campaigns unique to each game. Some of our tools
- A PR team constantly pitching fresh content and stories to the press, keeping our games in the public eye.
- Paid advertising and placement with original creative and copy, produced in close partnership with the developer.
- Relationships with hundreds of influencers
- Fans constantly engaged on social media with updates, contests, exclusive asset drops, and much more.
- An office in Tokyo that lets us speak directly to Japanese fans, media, influencers, and retailers.
Point of SALE
We sell physical versions in just about every major store in the US, Japan, and Europe.
We’ve offered digitally downloadable games since 2006.
Physical or digital, getting the game on the store is just the first step. Our special sauce is marketing that moves games from the store to consumers’ systems.

Submitting Your Pitch
Please send your pitch to email@example.com.
Please include the following:

Any information you share with us will be treated as confidential.
We cannot promise a publishing deal and your submission does not create a contractual relationship. However, we do promise to look at anything you submit, and if you have a great game we’ll work with you to make it an incredible success!
