Announcing the new Indie Dev Grant and the Indie RPG bundle!

Kyttaro Games are happy to announce a brand new Indie Dev Grant initiative; one that will hopefully help one more indie developer or team achieve their creative goals.
Having already supported such amazing indie projects as MaiaUnder the Ocean,Whispering WillowsRiver City Ransom: Underground and 99 Spirits and having helped bring more exposure to as many excellent indie games as we could, Kyttaro Games and Bundle In A Box are ready to once again accept your Indie Dev Grant submissions!
Oh, and, of course, we are also more than excited to announce our very next bundle too: The Indie RPG Bundle that will very soon be going live, with an impressive selection of indie roleplaying games.
What is the Indie Dev Grant?
The Indie Dev Grant, that popular feature of Bundle In A Box we are most proud of, is a grant designed to help indie game developers actually create the games they’ve always wanted to. For every 100 bundles sold $15 will be added to the grant. One indie developer (be it a group or an individual) voted by the esteemed fans of Bundle in a Box will get the whole amount after the bundle ends.
No strings will be attached by either Bundle in a Box or Kyttaro Games. The grant can be used in any way the developer that earns it sees fit and will in no way be obliged to co-operate with Kyttaro Games, Capsule Computers or Bundle in a Box. Developers that have already taken part in one of our bundles or are willing to do so in the future are also eligible for the grant. Actually, absolutely anyone is free to enter; yes, even people trying to buy some time in order to create their next freeware gem.

Will the IDG help a game get any exposure?
Yes, we know it will.
Each game or project will be presented on the BIAB Blog, our tumblr, facebook, google plus page and twitter and, of course, on the Indie Dev Grant site.

How can a game be submitted?
As gamers will start voting on the developer that will earn the grant from the moment the bundle launches, we do ask those interested in participating to contact us with their entries up to September 9, 2013.
To enter, please e-mail us at info@bundle-in-a-box.com and provide us with the following:
-A title for the project you are going to be using the IDG for.
-One screenshot or piece of concept art from your project.
-One link to your project’s or your personal site (if available).
-A description of your project (up to 200 words).
-Something about you or your team (up to 100 words).
-One link to a trailer from your project (if available).
-One download link to a demo or an early version of your project (if available).
Mail us and we’ll try to get back to you as soon as possible. Keep in mind that offensive or copyright infringing projects will not be accepted. Also, already released games cannot be accepted.

How can *you* help the Indie Dev Grant?
Well, you could spread the word about both the Indie Dev Grant and Bundle In A Box; after all, the financial help and exposure we can provide to indie developers is directly analogous to the popularity of our bundle.
What’s more, you can e-mail us at info@bundle-in-a-box.com to directly donate money to the grant. Details on donations and the names of donors will be available on the forthcoming Indie Dev Grant site.

Don't forget you can also keep up to date by adding the Indie Game News Google+ page to your circles.
