Overview: Told through the story of grant budgets from 3 academic institutions in New York State, this talk from the NYU Game Center reveals what can be done with ~$3,000,000 over a 3 year period, and what can't. A quick overview of each school's budget, goals, and missteps provides insight into the value of setting and completing goals for game communities with grant funding. The second half of the talk focuses on how to plan and accomplish similar goals without funding and is applicable to both academic institutions as well as independent creator communities.
