Morning Consolidation

10. Re: Morning Consolidation Apr 3, 2012, 17:12 JeffD
Angry birds is a bad example. it had no marketing, it was released and THEN the hype started up. Now all its marketing money is from money it has allready made.

It really does seem though that most of a games budget is all on advertising.

Game cost will baloon to as much as the author wants it too. Texture sources usualy start out high, models can take abit more development time. Animation has actually become easier because physics and 3d engines are now able to adjust them on the fly so many little animations done in the past can now be tweened by the engine on the fly. Also motion capture is getting easier and easier to do.

Level design does get more intense, but this really isn't a hardware limitation, and more to do with the artistic vision of the set piece being done.

As far as game cost have come... we are still paying 60 bucks and they still make crappy games. some things never change.
