Indie Game Development


We're committed to supporting those who are giving back, working hard to learn, or hacking together something fun.
Because of that, BugSplat has a free plan or those working on building an indie video game on little or no budget.
Additionally, BugSplat provides a 25% discount for Team and Business plans for Indie Developers who used the Free Plan during development.

Indie Game Dev Free Plan:

If you're unaffiliated with a funded studio and currently developing your game, you probably qualify for a free plan from BugSplat.
To start out, Indie devs get annual 25,000 free monthly crashes and errors, one user seat, and one application.
If your team has special circumstances you can [email protected] and tell us a little bit about yourself and your game. We'll likely add additional users or crashes if needed.

How long does this plan last?

Once you launch your game or secure funding, we will work with you to find a plan that works for your game, team, and company and send you a 25% discount code for your first 6 months of using a paid account at BugSplat.

How can I support BugSplat during the free plan?

First off, it's very nice that you're thinking of us. We're touched.
There is no responsibility on your part to help us in exchange for getting free crash reporting.
If you're determined to be super nice—how dare you—you could mention us positively to your friends and coworkers. Please also consider including a link to our website in your documentation.
BugSplat is a bootstrapped startup and we grow largely on the back of positive word of mouth from our users.
