[NXiN] Nexon America Opens Nexon iNitiative 2011

If you follow Nexon America, chances are you’re aware of the massive $1 million funding project aimed towards indie development studios that Nexon America hosted in 2010, the Nexon iNitiative. The first Nexon iNitiative which took place in 2010 saw 115 applicants from 27 countries in 6 continents. Only two of these applicants, Antic Entertainment in Canada and One2Tribe in Poland, were selected. These two independent game development studios have earned a share of over $1,000,000, have their game co-developed by Nexon, signed a publishing contract with Nexon America, and will have the honor of their game(s) being globalized through Nexon’s massive global distribution channel.

Following the success of the first program, Nexon America has announced the second Nexon iNitiative. As last year, independent studios looking for some funding and a publishing agreement with Nexon America, have until April 30 to submit their applications.

If you’re an independent game developer interested in joining in on the Nexon iNitiative, see its website here. This website will tell you almost everything you need to know, and if you need to know anything else you can always contact Nexon America.

[NXNA] The Nexon Initiative: $1 Million for your Creativity

These is one of the reasons that Nexon stands above other publishers.

“Nexon iNitiative” program launched, accepting submissions until April

Many people have good ideas, but few have the resources to do anything with them.  Nexon America is hoping to inspire aspiring creative minds with a $1 million reward.

The people who brought you MapleStory, Combat Arms, and other such free online games are doing rather well, if you haven’t noticed.  As such, they’re putting some of that sweet, delicious money into the “Nexon iNitiative” program, which will “provide up to $1 million” in support to budding game developers.

If your submission makes the cut, Nexon will sponsor and co-develop the project, and later publish it through their network.  There aren’t any requirements, per se, but there is a certain “type” that Nexon prefers:

The Nexon iNitiative is looking for potential PC-based games that have broad appeal and encourage community and social interaction. Flash, client-based games or ports from other platforms are welcome. Games with strong online elements will get serious consideration, but no good idea will be turned away.

You can begin submitting concepts immediately at the official iNitiative website, up until April 30, at 6:00 PM PST.  Finalists will be picked by June.
