Gato, the social gaming platform for everyone

Today we bring you a new useful article for players and developers. Our games are available on different platforms, and for the past few months, some of our titles have been on GATO. But…what is GATO? Stay and find out.

To begin, GATO is a free global and social platform with the mission of supporting, boosting, incubating and developing indie games and their creators, while exposing the games in front of thousands of players.

Its idea is to seek to publish and scale games of any type or state, for example: pre-alpha, alpha, demos, experiments, about to be launched or already launched, all this through a multi-device platform that has a large audience eager to play all kinds of games. All this sounds good, on one hand players can find a great variety of games and developers a platform where they can showcase and even test their game ideas for free, but that’s not all, they can also monetize them.


Just like other platforms, GATO shares advertising revenue with developers who have uploaded their games to the platform. But the big difference is that the developer doesn’t have to integrate strange APIs or make weird adaptations, GATO takes care of everything, which is a great advantage. Now, how is the balance of what was generated calculated? It’s very simple, when your games get the most attention from users, for example, the more sessions and minutes there are, the more you’ll earn. It is calculated based on the CPM (cost per 1,000 impressions).



Previously we mentioned that GATO seeks to publish and scale indie games and help their creators, and a wonderful way it has to do this is Game Quest, an event where developers can upload their games, be voted on by the public and finally be analyzed by industry experts who are part of the “GATO Council”, which includes people from Argentina, Brazil, the United States, Spain, Mexico, Peru and Italy. We have to highlight that in its first edition we were part of the council and had the opportunity to play great games.

In its latest edition, more than 600 games were presented and more than 100 were selected to participate. They were played by players from more than 100 countries and there were various prizes for the winners.


Finally, if you are players and want to see what you can find on GATO, we share the link to their website with you. Also, if you are developers and found everything we told you interesting, you are invited to upload your games!


Beacon of Neyda Kickstarter Announcement

We want to make the official announcement that we are going to start a Kickstarter campaign soon.

Yes, the time has come, what we mentioned would be a possibility in previous dev diaries is now a reality

Why Kickstarter?
Kickstarter makes it possible for small, niche video games like ours to thrive. The project was born with an idea in 2022 and after creating the first prototype and showing it at events, we felt confident in expanding the project, winning several awards along the way. At the end of 2023 we got what we needed to be able to work full time on the project and we also managed to have the help of ID@Xbox so that our game is on their console. It is difficult to continue with the pace of development so we realized that we were going to need extra help.

Our Plan
That being said, the game is going to be made one way or another, it may take longer and depending on how it goes in the future we will be able to add more content once it is released with updates. Kickstarter is very important to us, but we do not want to put pressure on our future players. Any collaboration you are willing to make is appreciated, but if you cannot contribute financially, we appreciate you sharing or spreading it, that would also help us a lot.

What happens if we fail?
Having said that, the game is going to be made in one way or another, it may take more time and depending on how it goes in the future we will be able to add more content once it is released with updates. The Kickstarter is very important to us but we don’t want to put that pressure on our future players. If you can’t collaborate, we appreciate it if you can share or spread it, that would also help us a lot.

And that’s all for this announcement. Don’t forget to also follow us on Kickstarter to find out when it will be released and thank you for all your support so far.
