In May 2020, I did a webinar with the Aalto University on the topic of How To Minimize Risks In Games Business, especially when you are trying to get a startup off the ground. We have the accompanying slides on our website, which you can find by going to https://elitegamedevelopers.com/risks.

The risks that are involved in a gaming startup.

  • Not having a mission
  • Hiring
  • Fundraising
  • The scale of the game
  • Not being a learning machine
  • Unrealistic expectations
  • Publishing
  • Changes in the market
  • Game designer risks
  • Coder and artist risks
