Is Beamable completely free for development?
Yes. If you want to try Beamable, you can download the Unity Package for free and use all the features to develop your game. You can get support via Discord or our online documentation. When you are ready to launch your game, let us know and we can move you to a paid plan based off the pricing on our website.
What does the 5% revenue (rev) share include?
We take a revenue share on the net cash receipts that flow through the Beamable platform after the app stores take their cut plus the advertising revenue reported to us by you the customer. We take a cut of ad revenue because social features like groups, events, leaderboards, etc. are high drivers of revenue for both in-app purchases (IAP) and rewarded video views. Our goal is to work with you to increase revenue for the game across all forms of revenue through LiveOps content and live game features.
I have a special situation and would like to talk about the price
No problem! We offer a great deal of flexibility given your game, timeline, expected scale, and unique needs. Let's discuss your game!
How long is a typical agreement?
We ask you to sign a 12 month agreement. However, you are not charged anything until your game starts making money. If you never ship your game, then there are no fees and no risk to you.
Can I cancel if I change my mind?
Because Beamable runs on a revenue share, if you never ship your game with Beamable installed in your Unity project, you don't owe us any money. You can remove Beamable from your game at any time. So there isn't really a reason to cancel. You can just stop using Beamable and you will no longer get billed. You can also get started for free in development and then decide the best pricing option when you get close to launch.
What do I get with the high priority chat/email support for $199 per month?
In addition to the Discord channel access, our online documentation website and developer QA forum, you will have a private channel created in Discord between you and the Beamable technology team. In that chat room you can ask confidential, specific questions to help you implement Beamable and make your game more successful.
What if I select an enhanced support option and change my mind later?
You can notify us that you would like to cancel your enhanced support services at any time, and the cancellation takes affect the following month. You will then no longer be charged for enhanced support, but continue to use the platform for services on the 5% net revenue share.
