A video game business plan can be a tricky thing. Depending on your idea, development time and cost can vary immensely. And with the proliferation of platforms"”desktop or laptop computers, handheld computers, and smartphones"”you have a huge number of distribution channels to consider, each with their own advantages and limitations. Internet Flash games might be the easiest to develop and quickest to debut, but they may not afford the same levels of experience and riches as the Xbox 360. Or maybe it makes more sense to develop for the iPad?
There are a huge number of things to consider when you're developing a business plan for a video game, such as:
• How many other video games share your concept or story?
• How graphic-intensive is your video game? And how will you develop those graphics?
• What about gameplay? Is it narrow, like a Tetris or a Bejeweled, or more freeform, like a Grand Theft Auto?
• Do you need to develop a physics engine, or can you license one? Do you even need a physics engine?
• How many programmers do you need? Do you need an army, or can you make do with a solitary Flash developer?
• How do you want to distribute your video game? Will Apple's App Store reject your game? Can you get your game into Gamestop?
