Platform to sell software as a service ?

Recommended Posts

I'm building a game engine and i'm looking for this kind of software platform service:


- Develop online, like with cloud9.
- Suppose we are talking about .net
- Game developers can buy and use my engine, not by downloading it, but instead the platform automatically copies my engine's .dll in their project.
- The api must NOT be an http service, in order to be fast.
- Plugin developers can create and sell plugins for my (plugin enabled) engine the same way.
- I'm not looking for a particular language, can be .net, java or whatever.

Do you know if there is such a platform ?

I know of no such product that does all of this. However this is a neat idea for a start up.

You could just package the engine on your own computer and sell it through an app store or other online distribution platform. Do you really have to be able to edit and package the code online?

This method works fine for one time payment products, but I need the service to be low cost, and thus pay-per-use.

With the pay-per-use model, there are a lot of things i will have to do to make it happen, and i was wondering if there is a software platform that already does this.
