Hi,

I was wondering what is the normal out of pocket financial investment for licensing companies to represent your game. If you have invented a game, and a licensing company offers to promote it for you and try to get it licensed to a game company, approximately how much money would you expect to have to contribute to the project up front?

I am talking about a reputable company that has been around in the industry for a while and has a track record of success.

I don't.

I remember it was pretty long, people were talking about what size cut an agent would expect, and I believe the topic of how to approach an agent/ what they'd expect up front came up.

Don't worry, someone who knows/cares more about this aspect will come along eventually!

I would say $0

How do you know there success rate? Can they give you a full list of all clients and how many game they have placed? I bet they won't.

You should only pay if they are successful. It may be a fixed amount or a % of your contract but paying someone for nothing is bunc.

If they really think you game has a chance of getting placed they will work for commission. Otherwise there is no real incentive for them to do their job.

Who are you talking about?
