The Search Part III
There is no better scenario then working with people you can trust. A team that you hand-picked, comprised of your closest friends that had the skill set to pull off even your wildest imagination. After failing once again to find phone game developers in the regular community, not unless we wanted to pay as much as a Porsche (read previous blog), we decided to start approaching our own network.
But even this approach, as we found out, gets messy. The problem with friends and “your network” is most already have “full time jobs” (imagine me doing air quotes right now) and your dream is competing with their other personal “priorities”. It’s hard to justifying to someone that wedding planning should be secondary to a mobile game development project (but we sure as hell tried). And the other difficulty when dealing with friends is how do you compensate them and keep them motivated?
