Back in 2012, Grant Rodiek asked me to write a guest blog post for his Hyperbole site. He and I had chatted about how I approached publishers. He asked me to summarize my thoughts. The article is available here. http://hyperbolegames.com/node/16
Some of it aged well, and some of it… wellll… not so much. For starters, none of the other “deals” mentioned in the article ever went through. They all seemed solid at the time, but that’s the nature of dealing with publishers.
The rest of the content still seems relevant. I didn’t mention sell sheets, but those hadn’t really emerged yet.
What do you think? Does the article hold up? Anything you’d add? Feel free to comment or ask questions.
