As a place for the Australian games industry to connect, Game Plus is a hub for digital entrepreneurs, allowing them to work alongside one another and share resources, knowledge, and opportunities. It also provides government and industry with access to specialist expertise in interactive entertainment, simulation, and training.
The partnership provides Game Plus members with affordable access to OneQode’s Asia-Pacific-wide network, servers and cloud platform.
Through OneQode’s APAC Central location in Guam, participating Game Plus members will be able to access more than 1.45 billion players on a level playing field, connecting more than 20 countries including Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo, and the United States, to a latency-neutral location.
“Our Guam APAC Central hub will help game developers expand their audience to international players. The games industry is growing, and OneQode wants Australian developers to have every opportunity to get more eyes on their hard work” says Michelle Krikowa, OneQode’s Business Development Manager.
OneQode will provide trial credits for their high-performance cloud platform, and discounts across all services to Game Plus members. There will also be a direct line of support to the OneQode team on the Game Plus Discord server.
“Indie games are made with a lot of passion and talent, but they often don’t get the install base of a AAA game, so to help Game Plus members access more players is an excellent opportunity,” says Jarrod Farquhar-Nicol, Team Leader at Game Plus.
The OneQode team is excited to give independent Australian game studios a stepping stone to Asia through Game Plus. The partnership will unlock more opportunities for Australian developers to reach a global audience.
