Monaco Made Back Its Investment in Pre-order Cash Alone

When Indie Fund was set up in 2010 to give financial support to eager independent game developers the first game they put their faith and money in was Monaco.

It has been revealed that Monaco made back the $100,000 investment in pre-orders alone, in fact it made more than that even, raking in $120,000 before the game was even released.

Schatz said to Joystiq: “For me the most significant thing about the early success with regards to Indie Fund is that it shows that there are many ways of approaching funding, from crowdfunding to investment models like Indie Fund, to personal loans – I know a number of devs that have taken loans from other devs – to the traditional publisher model.”

The game, described as a “single player or co-op heist game” and subtitled “What’s Yours Is Mine”, has reviewed very well, recieving among other high scores a 9/10 from Eurogamer and an 8/10 from Edge.
