Are you in the market for another monthly blind subscription service for games? While IndieBox and Humble Monthly are already familiar names to many gamers, GamePump will soon enter the crowded space with a unique gimmick that just might help them stand out.
According to the service’s official website, GamePump will team up with veteran developers to bring “gaming artifacts” to Steam for the first time. This includes classic PC games from a bygone era, as well as games that were only released for consoles during their original run. GamePump also plans to publish original games and work with developers who are interested in creating spiritual successors to their retro hits.
How GamePump Works
We partner with video game veterans of today and yesteryear to reclaim lost gaming artifacts.
Which is a really fancy way of saying, we revive classic game libraries from the proverbial basements of some of the top video game publishers in the world and help bring them to modern hardware.
How Can We Make This Promise?
We only publish games that have never been on Steam. This includes bringing classic console exclusives to the PC for the first time ever by partnering with the premiere indie developers. In addition, some games are developed exclusively for GamePump as spiritual successors to your favorite game franchises of the past.
Because GamePump is a blind subscription service, the company doesn’t want to pre-announce any of the titles they’ve got lined up for their first year. However, IndieDB recently sat down with founder Robert Bowling (that’s right… the Call of Duty guy), and he revealed that WayForward is developing one of GamePump’s first offerings.
GamePump currently offers three subscription tiers on their website including 12 Months ($20), 3 Months ($15), and 1 Month ($5). The company’s first game will be available in January 2017.
