The Struggle for Funding
Drowning in the Sea of Investors
As the captain of our indie game studio, we’re always on the lookout for a smooth and steady journey, but we all know that there are always rough waters to navigate. And in the world of game development, one of the biggest waves we have to tackle is securing funding. It’s a daunting task, and it can feel like we’re being thrown into the deep end without a life jacket.
First of all, there’s the matter of finding the right investors. It’s like trying to find a pearl in a vast ocean of sea creatures – it’s not impossible, but it takes a lot of effort and patience. There are investors who are interested in the gaming industry, but there are also those who are simply in it for the money, which makes the whole process feel like a giant game of cat and mouse.
Once we’ve found the right investors, we have to convince them to invest in our game. It’s like trying to convince a mermaid to part with her precious treasure – we have to show them the value of our game and why it’s worth investing in. This involves a lot of research, preparing presentations and prototypes, and having a solid business plan in place.
It’s a challenging journey, and it can feel like we’re swimming against the current, but it’s not all doom and gloom. We have to keep in mind that securing funding is just one step in the journey of game development, and with every rejection, we learn and grow as a team.
In conclusion, the journey to secure funding is like a deep sea dive, but it’s not impossible. With determination, perseverance, and the right approach, we can reach the surface with a treasure trove of investment that will help us bring our game to life.
