Q&A

How Much are My Services?

It really depends on the type of design or consulting services you are looking for, for example some clients simply want to call me for advice on projects they are working on, and others want me working with them on a wide range of games throughout the month.  In these events I work out a hourly consulting fee for those clients that only need my service from time to time, while I charge a monthly fee for those who need consulting and design material generated throughout the month.  So for the amount I charge, it is tailored to the design or consulting budget a client has worked out for that project.  This budget can vary greatly from small developers to large, so I try to be as flexible as I can.


What Guarantees do I Offer?

Clients only pay for the work that has been approved and deem helpful.  As an example, when I do phone or Skype consulting with a client and they haven’t found my advice helpful then I don’t charge them anything, while with my design material, if a client rejects them for use then they don’t pay for them.

In general, a client I’m working for only pays me at the end of the month for the work that has been done and approved.

Disclaimer: Please note that Stories, Diagrams, Flowcharts, Designs and other material that I have generated for a game project that have not been accepted and or payed for remain the property of Awaken Games.  I’ve had situations in the past where a client has rejected designs and not paid for them, and then turned around and used those designs in their games and or used for securing project funding.


What Style of Games Have done Designed for?

I’ve done game play designs for Action Adventures, Strategy Games, Casino Games, Platform Games, Party Games, Drone, Casual Games, RPG’s, RTS Games, Puzzle Games, Action Shooters, Sports Games, Kids Games and much more.


What Game Platforms have I Worked With?

This is a question that comes up a lot, and throughout my three decades of game development experience I’ve found that great game designs are great, no matter the platform. That being said, I’ve done game designs for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, Sony Playstation 1,2,3 & 4, Sony PSP, Nintendo SNES/ GameBoy and Nintendo Wii, Sega Game Gear, Sega Genesis, PC and special VR Systems.  I also have experience working on Arcade Machines.
