Aleksey Savchenko, former business development manager at Epic Games, has announced a new consulting service for video game developers, that will help them land better deals with publishers and investors.
You can read the full announcement on his Facebook page. The service will be launched in October. The project will help developers that were “screwed by the small font in the contract,” or just require assistance properly launching their own business.
"First, there is no need to be afraid of anything. Secondly, each of us can stand up for what we believe in. Sometimes you only need a couple of good people, who would just stop being silent and do something to change the place we all have chosen as our home for the better. I will make every effort to gather all the caring people in the industry together; I will figure out how to support developers and will stand on this naïve belief that banal justice should exist in our space", Savchenko wrote.
During his 22 years in the games industry, Aleksey Savchenko saw countless cases of developers being deprived of rights to their games, having problems with payments, and facing direct humiliation like it is all normal.
