Rental service turns mobile publisher

Gamefly has landed on a new source of income: mobile development.

"We're going to be doing some pub-funding," said Gamefly's editorial director Garnett Lee during the April 6th edition of the Weekend Confirmed podcast.

The company has made a successful business renting game discs for several years, but with many industry experts questioning the future of physical media, Gamefly is looking for other sources of revenue.

Lee said his company wanted to "help good games get made," and encouraged iOS and Android developers to contact him for more information.
