We've had a Marketplace on GameDev.net for several years, but it has never been quite right. The content was always excellent, but it was difficult to find what you wanted and ultimately buried in the scale of GameDev.net.
GameDev Marketplace is what our Marketplace should have been from the beginning - providing a solution integrated with the GameDev.net community in a way that benefits buyers, sellers, and the industry as a whole.
So what is it?
The new GameDev Marketplace is a community-driven platform to buy, sell, and exchange premium content, software, and more for games and interactive media. For Buyers we offer searchable, engine independent, high quality content for use in any game or interactive media project. In the future, we'll add additional services to the Marketplace to help you find the content you need.
For Sellers, the GameDev Marketplace provides more configurability and scalability with direct access to the hundreds of thousands of developers in the GameDev.net community. You will have better access to reports, full product customizations, your very own storefront, coupons, sales, and more with complete integration in the GameDev.net ecosystem.
When we say integration with the GameDev.net ecosystem, we mean it - this isn't yet another site. To get started, just login with your GameDev.net account. Don't have an account yet? No problem - register through GameDev Marketplace and we'll create one for you.
Once you are logged in you can browse the Shop and use our filters to find the content you want. You can also use our powerful search, located at the top of every page.
You can become a Seller by applying through your Account Settings. Once approved you can setup your Shop and start adding products. And if you made it this far here's an extra bonus - all Sellers who are approved for the GameDev Marketplace in the first 100 days after launch (until January 1, 2017) will receive 80% commission on their sales for a full year - these are industry-best rates!
We're excited to bring GameDev Marketplace to the game development community and hope it brings you value. Please contact us if you have any questions or feedback.
