mightymarcus Posted November 30, 2016 Share Posted November 30, 2016 General question about gamedev: Do you think it is a good idea to develop a game for somebody who tells you exactly what he wants to have? Somebody asked me to code a game for him, and I would get payed. But I really don't know if this is a good idea. I make games primarily for my own fun and excitement, and for me it is art. A game is no website or some tool somebody wants to have. And even if I were free to do what I want, why should I sell my work instead of trying to sell the game for myself? But maybe if it's just a small advertising game and I could earn some money ... the question is how much? And how much work it is? Even a small game is not done in a week. Do somebody here have some experience with making games as a service? What do you think about it? Would you do that? Or would you rather keep your focus on making your own games and try to publish them? I don't like the idea, but I could need some money. As I think the man is not really a gamedev hero, I expect that I should make a flappy bird clone, match 3 clone, simple platformer with collecting coins or something like that. And he wants that for mobile (android). Thanks for your thoughts. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
