Q&A – Costs April 5, 2008Posted by Robert Rich in Uncategorized.
What are the costs of producing these games?
“It costs a lot of money to develop interactive software. A lot of that can be offset by doing really creative things. For some of our games, it cost money, but there was a very attractive upside. I’m willing to work on things at very low cost upfront if it will pay out later. Plus it makes me more invested in the game and in the quality of the game.” – Ian Bogost
“Some of these games had 2 million players. They’re free, that’s part of why they work so well, but they are reaching a lot of people. Some of the games I showed had a budget of $3 million, so it goes up.” -Suzanne Seggerman
“If you want to use the game to develop them to other traffic, develop it that way. It’s cost from 50-500,000 thousand, depending on how fast you want to develop it.” – Howard Finberg
