New York, New York, September, 2022 - VoxPop Games, Inc. today announced the appointment of gaming industry veteran Jeronimo Barrera as Chairman of the Advisory Board as well as the formation of a new game fund to help support indie game development.

With the creation of the fund, VoxPop Games hopes to go one step further and provide direct funding to independently developed games with interesting concepts. Games made in partnership with the VoxPop fund will be sold exclusively on the VoxPop platform for a time on release together with the games developed in-house in the future. The first game in the fund’s portfolio will be revealed at a later date.
About VoxPop Games
VoxPop Games, Inc., a new game distribution and development platform, is a peer-to-peer games marketplace with a profit-sharing business model. VoxPop primarily caters to independent developers who may not have the marketing budget to pursue traditional advertising as a model. Developers can promise a share of their profits to those who recommend their games, allowing them to drive their own affiliate marketing campaigns. Influencers who sign onto VoxPop get a link which directs users to their recommended games. This link can go anywhere a Patreon or Ko-Fi link might and offers an additional path to monetization from users who might otherwise be unwilling to donate for content. VoxPop hopes to disrupt the gaming market by creating systems for smaller content creators to prop up one another.
