We’re pleased to announce that our Game Engine tools built for the Unity engine have been approved for sale in their Asset portal

Lets talk about this for a moment, what does this mean for I/O Labs?

Selling as a publisher.

The process was relatively straight forward, when we were sent a Vive developers kit to develop tools with one of our first tools was a VR application to have standard inputs (buttons, leavers, knobs) for a group of developers.

Because of our acceptance as a Unity Live Expert, the publishing process was simple. We submitted our asset and they reviewed and gave us publishing access within 5 business days.

Revenue?

We’ll show off one of our Asset packages: alt text

This package took 3 days of development time, and this was a slow month, you can predict your sales anywhere between $50 USD - $120 USD a month, with little to no marketing. Since we developed this application in the infancy of VR we’ve gained a following and we get consistent sales. 

After the wait we got confirmation that our tools would be featured to all Unity developers.


The tools included into their system include:
