Session Name: Independent Games Summit: Sharing in Success: How to Compensate Your Team Through Revenue Sharing
Speaker(s): Kellen Voyer
Company Name(s): Voyer Law
Track / Format: Independent Games Summit
Overview: Revenue sharing is a common method for team compensation but is often discussed without a full understanding of how revenue sharing will actually be implemented. As a result, flawed revenue share structures may be promised that could easily have been prevented if the studio better understood revenue sharing structures at the start.nnThe aim of this presentation is to educate attendees on video game studio revenue sharing structures and elements to consider when developing such structures. Attendees will learn about two common revenue sharing structures, and the upsides and downsides of each. Attendees will also learn about key elements to consider when preparing a revenue sharing structure, for example, how revenue share is earned, calculated and how to handle future DLC, as well as common problems to avoid.nnBy understanding these structures, attendees will be better positioned to create effective studio compensation structures that fairly compensate the team, promote buy-in and, where necessary, protect the studio.
