Working With Outsource Agencies

A great team is important but there’s another way to take your game studio to the next level…

Outsourcing work to other studios and entities!

To do that you’ll want to follow these best practices to ensure a smooth and successful collaboration!

When it comes to outsourcing work for your game studio, there are several best practices to keep in mind to ensure a smooth and successful collaboration.


Clearly define the scope of work: Before beginning any outsourcing partnership, it is essential to clearly define the scope of work and establish clear communication channels with the outsourced studio or entity. This will ensure that everyone is on the same page and reduce the potential for misunderstandings or miscommunications.


Choose a partner that aligns with your studio's values: It is important to choose an outsourcing partner that shares your studio's values and goals. This will ensure that you are working with a team that is aligned with your vision and can help you achieve your objectives.


Establish a clear timeline and budget: Setting a clear timeline and budget will help ensure that the outsourcing partnership stays on track and that both parties are aware of the expectations and constraints.


Protect your intellectual property: It is crucial to have a robust intellectual property (IP) agreement in place to protect your studio's IP and ensure that your assets are not used in any unauthorized manner.


Foster a collaborative relationship: Building a strong, collaborative relationship with your outsourcing partner is key to the success of any partnership. Make sure to regularly communicate and provide feedback to ensure that the work is being completed to your satisfaction.

By following these best practices, independent game studios and solo developers can confidently and successfully outsource work to other studios and entities while protecting their interests and achieving their goals.
