Business model

Gun's business model is to leverage their immense talent to make blockbuster games while acquiring and engaging customers across platforms. These games can range from free-to-play to downloadable games for the iPhone, Xbox, Playstation, etc. Each platform offers different revenue streams. Some short term, some long. The type of game will also affect the duration of returns. Gun currently launched Breach & Clear, their freshman effort, with immense success in the app store. The goal of Gun is to develop one game a year. Additionally, Gun may acquire “off-the-shelf” unpublished games in an opportunistic fashion.

Our first game, Breach & Clear is a runaway success within the iTunes App Store, rocketing up the charts to become the #1 Strategy game in 18 countries and holding the top ten paid ipad charts in iTunes.
