DRACULA: ORIGIN - How Do Game Developers Earn

It was since the 1980s that video games became a part of people’s lives – may it be entertainment or work-related. According to that this site, they have built an industry that earns tens of billions of dollars in the United States alone.

The people who are mainly behind these amusing works of design and imagination are who we call game developers.

To produce a game, a group of game developers work together to program, design, and test the product before releasing it. This takes place mostly in big companies, however, there are also individuals who work on their own with their own budget to create what we call as an indie (independent) game.

How Game Developers Make Their Fortune

According to the latest 2019 survey in the United States, the average base pay of a game developer reaches an estimated 100,000 USD a year. That said, here are ways that game developers can earn money:

Developing Independent Games

Game developers can work on their own without the help of publishers or investors willing to support the expenses of producing a game.

This goes well for building a good portfolio before entering a big video game company that can ensure a stable pay. However, there are those who choose to stay indie. They either earn more or less 500 USD a month or make a big hit and earn their lucky thousands to millions of dollars from a single game.

Minecraft is a good example of an indie game that made a big hit. Until now, it is generating millions of dollars with around 90 million user accounts active monthly.

Get Paid to Work

This is how most game developers earn their money – by working for companies or individuals who need the skills of a game developer to accomplish a certain task.

One way to do this is through freelancing. A game developer can present himself on the internet with his portfolio displayed, and from there, he can accept jobs from individuals or companies. But most of the time, this does not include earning shares from the actual sales of the game once produced.

The income from freelancing varies depending on the developer’s skills, experience, location and the company/individual he is working for.

Advertisements

Indie games earn a big portion from advertisements. This is also how developers monetize the games that they have released for free. Clothing lines, food companies, automotive companies, and the like can buy advertisements from game developers. This is great marketing for most consumer companies out there and an effective way that allows game developers to earn passively.

Commonly, the popularity of the game and the number of user accounts it holds can be a determining factor for the client on how much they’ll be paying for the advertisements. Of course, bigger games with more user accounts receive bigger payment for their ad space than small games that cover a smaller audience.

Conclusion

Having a career as a game developer can get quite challenging and frustrating at times, but the opportunities a video game developer have are great. It’s not a low-paying job after all. All it takes are the right skills and the right mindset. Let’s not forget about making the right choices. A game developer can work as a programmer, a game designer, a visuals artist, etc.

Game developers earn a good amount of money, specifically ranging from $50,000 to $100,000 yearly, and that’s just the base pay. It does not differ from other good paying jobs today.
