Ever since the advent of the Flash platform, vector based animation and game development have undergone a sea change. Today, Flash games promise the kind of thrills and excitement that is hard to find elsewhere. Game development companies everywhere are adding to the frenzy by regularly contributing new games to an already overwhelming collection of Flash games available on the Internet. Indeed, a skilled Flash game developer is a much sought after professional in today’s world.
If you are a Flash game developer looking for new opportunities to show your talent or have just started your very own Flash game development company and are looking for the best way to distribute and profit from your creations, you will be happy to learn that there are quite a few excellent resources on the Net to get you started on the right path.
For those just starting out with Flash game development, there are quite a few good resources online to help you learn the ropes in the all-exciting and ever-thrilling Flash game industry.
A specially advantageous position game development companies is to find a sponsor. Getting your game sponsored basically means another company is buying the game from you although there are various levels to what extent you can sell your rights. Websites such as Mochi Media, Kongregate, Armor Games and Newgrounds are some good names to remember in this regard.
These companies are always searching for new games to add to their sites and to this end, they have a dedicated panel of employees who are always testing and finding new products. You can even put your games on auction to be sold to the highest bidder. For example, sites like FlashGameLicense.com allow developers to put their games up to be previewed and played by sponsors. Sponsors are then able to bid on them until the developer finds a bid that is lucrative. In some cases, solitary game developers can get appointed by a bidding company as an in-house developer.
It may sometimes happen that you have a great idea for a Flash game but do not wish to develop it yourself. Under such circumstances, you will need to hire a developer. In that case, making money from your game can be a little harder. You would have to guarantee that a sponsor would buy the game for at least the cost you paid the developer in order to break even. You may also need to hope that it will become popular among the gaming community and you can generate some amount of ad revenue from it.
