I don't know if this is official or final pricing for CocoonJS.

I wonder what the Publishing Partnership rev share split is?

"Ludei will help you publish, market, monetize, optimize, promote and distribute your games worldwide through our partner network."

Marketing is almost a full time job on it own. As a one person game studio Publishing Partnership sounds very interesting to me.

Doesn't this kind of beat the purpose of HTML5. Construct 2 Licence 399$ + CocoonJS 500$/year. While Game Salad Pro goes for 299/year and exports to multiple platforms?

Crikey, for us we'll be paying $500 p/y just for IAP, plus up to $2000 more p/y based on projected users!

At the industry standard freemium conversion of <1% the reliance on high-volume and low conversions makes this incredibly expensive when priced per-user. Though I guess that's where the rev share comes in.

@Ludei care to comment on this? I'd be interested in hearing more about the rev share opportunity.

How did you find that URL? It doesn't look official (it's on dev-1.net, not ludei.com). The official Ludei site hasn't announced anything yet. So I guess these may not be the final prices.

I googled "cocoonjs price" and from the second page I found that link. Yes I do hope that it's not the final pricing for it.

At 49$ /m it's almost better to get adobes creative cloud membership with the cloud phonegap compiler plus the whole adobe suite. Not sure of phonegaps performance though.

PhoneGap is more geared toward paltform compatibility and exposing device specific API's than it is with boosting performance. Though they say they are looking at accelerators for different platforms going forward...

The purpose of HTML5 is not to be affordable or free. The technology itself has nothing to do with third party pricing structures.True Valhalla2013-02-13 02:07:59
