I’m so glad a place like Fangamer exists to deliver good products from my favourite game series.
From 2009 until 2012, Fangamer’s first ‘real’ office was in a former radiator storeThese collectives of hardcore avid gamers were attempting to make stuff they themselves actually wanted for the licenses they loved.
As their own target demographic, they knew firsthand that typical style guides just weren’t as effective, as well as the fact that enough of an audience for smaller properties needed servicing.

This implies more products can exist designed for smaller, yet sizable fandoms that want to show the world they support these smaller artists.
And after seeing the success of smaller devs carrying it out, it’s not only indie developers who are going the independent distributor route, either.

Helpful And High Quality

Given that there look like no signs of smaller game publications slowing, this leaves the market for distributing all levels of gaming franchises spacious.

Lately, he’s been working on its long-awaited sequel, Super Meat Boy Forever.

From Nintendo’s Letter To The Creation Of Fangamer

on Fangamers website.
“It far surpasses other things we’ve ever done, by way of a longshot,” says Young.
Just as much as any singular anecdote can, this illustrates just how fortuitous Fangamer was ahead up at a time when games created by individuals and small teams, not just corporations, were becoming mainstay attractions in the gaming industry.
By the mid-2000s, fandom was catching on with a DIY aesthetic.

  • When I had trouble with the delivery one time Fangamer was very helpful and right away sent another package without extra charge.

  • A lot more impressive is that their growth comes at the same time when Fangamer is not any longer the only real independent player on the field.

“We’ll have internal brainstorms in what products we really wanna make, even though it’s only a t-shirt to begin.” He describes this brainstorming as being open to everyone at the company.
By the mid-1990s, after reinventing itself as a company and accomplishing the Herculean task of re-popularizing video gaming for the home, Nintendo was still largely a Japanese export.
Even the company’s most-funded and concerted products – its video gaming – took additional months, if not years to leave the island before being localized into other markets like Latin America, Europe, and America, among others, often subsequently.
Leveraging its rapidly-growing market and mindshare during this global growth period meant intrepid but detached business endeavours completed over an ocean.
Instead of choosing broke, Young’s hope

@CharlieGirl Yeah that’s the problem with these companies as they get big.
You can tell how they probably had great and personal customer service back when they were smaller.
