Solo Developer Funding


Recommended Posts

I have been developing Vive games now for almost a year. But now I want to leave my job and start developing my own game. I would buy most of the assets from assets stores.

Is there any chance of getting funded from Vive Studios program with a single man team and just an awesome prototype ? So I could I hire a team and possibly rent an office.

 

Thanks.

There's definitely a chance Vive Studios would be interested but they handle things on a case by case basis. The application form is currently undergoing maintenance but can normally be found here. I can't speak to the level of support they can offer.

 

Some of the most successful VR projects have been made by studios with 1-3 devs so it is possible. That said, funding in VR is very competitive and the funding cycles are incredibly long. There is a wonderful Voices of VR episode about the funding landscape. An honest answer is that you shouldn't rely on trying to find funding from a singe source and that funding cycles can be a pretty epic journey - having community support goes along way.

Thanks  ,

I just needed motivation to start this, it's a huge risk for me. But I am definitely going to do this.

Funding is never my first choice but sometimes you can't help it.

Thanks for your advice and the links, I will explore all the options.
