Digital distributor Gamesplanet has partnered with Ulule to carve out a niche in the crowdfunding market with Gamesplanet Lab, a newly launched platform that handles crowdfunding of games, reward fulfillment, and distribution. To get a quick idea of what they're all about, take a look at the charter of commitments.

For instance, Gamesplanet Lab will be handpicking all projects, encouraging developers to use a DRM system that "prioritizes customer experience," and better promoting games with a quality label that gets applied to projects which receive a 70% approval rating or higher from a panel of backers.

Magrunner: Dark Pulse, a first-person puzzle game centered around cyberpunk themes and the Cthulhu mythos, has debuted on the platform and seems to be well on its way to full funding. Pendulo Studios (The Next Big Thing, Yesterday) is also going to be on board with its new game, Day One.
