Let’s be real for a minute. It can be tough out there. You can’t always predict how well your next indie game will do financially. Yet, you have a great team, your work is top notch and you want to keep your team together so you can continue to do the work you love. For most of us, the solution is obvious.

You’ve got to know how to negotiate the right deal that will set your team up for success. But this can be tricky, especially if you aren’t aware of your options.
In this talk, we’ll explore some different ways to structure projects, strategies to build lasting partnerships with clients and examine some of our own limiting beliefs that can prevent us from achieving our desired outcome.
