Under the terms of their partnership, independent developers working with START! Games
get free access to the NXN alienbrain asset management system to develop their prototypes. Once the project a been accepted by the publishers, the developer can then purchase NXN alienbrain for continued use.
START! Games finances games development projects from concept to prototype, then offers these projects to publishers. If accepted for development, the publisher
then takes over the funding of the game. START! inked a similar arrangement with SN Systems last month, involving free access to that company's tools, including ProDG.
