Plus9 is a brand new gaming platform and community for fans of Asian-developed games, brought together by Westgate Games, a team of industry veterans that have worked on studios such as En Masse Entertainment, KRAFTON, Riot Games, NCSoft and more, just to name a few. The platform is fairly simple to use, you can check out their official site here, and then download their launcher which will allow you to play amazing games like Tengami, Tales of the Neon Sea, Guilty Gear x2 #Reload, Synergia and more.
The team over at Plus9 have announced their Beta for their new subscription service called Game Club, which allows for players to play games free of charge for an optional subscription at a yearly cost, and simply by doing certain activities on the Plus9 community, which would allow for free Game Club time to be added to their account, extending their subscription. Westgate has been transparent on the fact that they want to fully support Developers, and are doing so by “taking 15% of revenue cuts from developers and publishers, so that the teams behind these games can get as much value as possible from their game sales.”
• Desktop App Similar to other platforms like Steam or the Epic Game Store, Plus9 includes a desktop application that allows full access to web features as well as local game management.
• +NET The platform’s social news service that features Asian developed gaming news, developer and publisher communication and player created content. Players can also submit their own articles for publishing in the +NET Writers Program.

Plus9 has teamed up with Sarumonin.com to offer its community a total of 600 months of subscription time (200 codes for 3 months each!), as a welcoming bonus to try out the games, see if its a right fit for you and more. If you’re interested in a code to try out the Game Club, simply visit the Saru’s House Discord and go to the #giveaways section. As for a personal suggestion, maybe check out Nightmare (Incubo), which is a side scrolling platform games, with a semi-horror theme, that’s about a boy trapped in his nightmares trying to discover the truth about his story.
