I am currently running a graphics company which is on the verge of a very big deal to produce mobile content for a massive chain of companies, the conent we produce at the moment is limited to gif animations and video ringtones however we are proposing to these companies that we will diversify into the games market if all goes well.
What i need to know is roughly how much will it cost and how long it would take for somebody to develop a game for us. I realise that this is quite a vague question so any ball park figures will do.
The games we would be interested in getting developed would be quite basic, somthing along the lines of the hackeysack game in 'california games' if any of you are aware of it.
Also, how do you think a developer would prefer to cost this job, would they prefer to take one big payment or to have a smaller payment and then a profit share system happening after that?
any help you can give will be much appreciated?
