Funding is a key part of completing a game project or opening a game studio.

Launching a new game is a challenge, but the SGC is here to help. In part one of an ongoing series on launching a game title we will talk about an idea for bounding the budget and scope of a game launch event. Game Launch Events or launch parties can be a great part of getting the word out on your brand new release or the start of your studio. A launch party can also suffer from budget creep that can be a fatal blow to a small developer.
