North Carolina-based Joystick Labs has announced that it has accepted mobile developer Buckle Up Game Studios into its accelerator program, with the aim to provide the company with early-stage funding for its next title. Founded by developers Kory Sherman and Chris Snyder, Buckle Up is currently working on puzzle game Flipped, a mobile title that uses the accelerometer to create unique physics-based gameplay. Joystick Labs will provide Buckle Up with seed funding, mentorship, services and networking to help it get the game's development off the ground. Kory Sherman, co-founder at Buckle Up, explained, "We had a great idea for our game, but did not have the resources to focus on full-time development or the business expertise to form a studio." "The Joystick Labs program provides opportunities and resources that will accelerate the development of our studio and our first title." Joystick Labs launched its incubation program last year, as a means of providing seed funding and office space for independent video game development firms targeting digital distribution.
