Whether you are a start-up, video game maker or established software developer, we can help with all your contractual needs, including:
Development agreements – have you been approached about developing a video game on behalf of a publisher or do you have an idea for a video game that you want to pursue? You will need an agreement to manage the relationship, from the quality of the work, payment terms, ownership of IP and termination
Sub-contractor agreements – if you’ve taken on additional developers or other contractors, you’ll need contracts setting out timescales for deliverables, payment and most importantly, ownership of intellectual property
Confidentiality or non-disclosure agreements – are you pitching your idea to investors or publishers? Having a non-disclosure agreement in place gives some protection
Publishing agreements – has a major publisher approached you about distributing your software? Retaining ownership of intellectual property is the key to your business’ survival and growth. Developers being forced to give up IP is no longer the norm, but your contracts need to accurately reflect that
