The exact revenue share breakdown will depend on the size of the project and the number of team members who are assigned to the project.
The average revenue share will be:
10% – 30% – This is to be used for “growth/expansion” and will be dedicated to being used for items such as advertising and marketing. This will also be used to recoup any costs such as for third party assets, server costs, and such. Depending on project this may vary however will never be more than 30%. In the event that less is needed, the remaining will be split among all members that are on a project.
10 – 15% – This will go to the project producer/manager with the exact amount dependent on the size of the project. The project producer/manager will be responsible for working with all other members on a project to bring the project to completion. The producer/manager will also be responsible for doing any development that is not assigned to another specific member.
10 -15% – This will be used for QA purposes as well as any costs associated with alpha/beta testing. Depending on project this may vary however will never be more than 20%. In the event that less is needed, the remaining will be split among all members that are on a project.
Remaining % – This will be split among all other members on a project.
For example, if a project is a small project that requires only three people (Project Manager, Animator, and Programmer) and have only a 10% requirement for growth and QA then the breakdown after costs will be:
10% – Growth
10% – QA, alpha, beta testing
10% – Project manager
70% – This will be split between the Animator and Programmer to give each 35%.
The breakdown for each individual project will be decided and communicated by the project manager at the beginning of each project.
