How much does it cost to make a video game?

The most simple and basic answer, is dad making your own game can be 100% entirely free. This comment is of course, assuming that you are capable of providing the programming, art, music, business, and marketing required with watching your game project.

In many examples of Indian games, a single developer, or a group of developers, working for very little to no money, will come together and produce a game. In some cases where a specific team member to perform a specific task, like creating art cannot be found, we do have to move into the world of freelancers, and possibly paid commissions/employees.

If you want to hire your contractors at an hourly rate, I expect to pay anywhere between 10 and $30, depending on the role. BeSure to ask about potential collaborations, although, if an artist tells you they only do paperwork, do not attempt to convince them to work for free for you.

Managing your own team in the payroll behind them can be quite cumbersome. In many cases it may be advantageous to hire or outsource a development team/development shop we can produce the assets required. This generally cost more money, however can take less time, and could produce assets of a much much higher quality.
