Where The Money Goes

I wanted to share with you a presentation about Where The Money Goes that is received from making video games. I made this presentation a few years ago to a game development studio I was running at the time and I believe everyone found it useful and gained a better understanding of where the money that comes into the business goes before it pays their wages and why ‘when’ it comes in is important too. I’ve updated this post since then with more up-to-date principles, information and costs as I learn new things ever day.

These are general principles that apply to any business and I’m going to cover the basics to hold on tight, feel free to ask me any questions in the comments section.
