Removing Payment Feature From Skyrim Workshop - Link Thu, 23 Apr 2015 17:07:29

Were going to remove the payment feature from the Skyrim workshop. For anyone who spent money on a mod well be refunding you the complete amount. We talked to the team at Bethesda and they agree. ltbrgt ltbrgtWeve done this because its clear we didnt understand exactly what we were doing. Weve been shipping many features over the years aimed at allowing community creators to receive a share of the rewards and in the past theyve been received well. Its obvious now that this case is different. ltbrgt ltbrgtTo help you understand why we thought this was a good idea our main goals were to allow mod makers the opportunity to work on their mods full time if they wanted to and to encourage developers to provide better support to their mod communities. We thought this would result in better mods for everyone both free ampamp paid. We wanted more great mods becoming great products like Dota Counter-strike DayZ and Killing Floor and we wanted that to happen organically for any mod maker who wanted to take a shot at it. ltbrgt ltbrgtBut we underestimated the differences between our previously successful revenue sharing models and the addition of paid mods to Skyrims workshop. We understand our own games communities pretty well but stepping into an established years old modding community in Skyrim was probably not the right place to start iterating. We think this made us miss the mark pretty badly even though we believe theres a useful feature somewhere here. ltbrgt ltbrgtNow that youve backed a dump truck of feedback onto our inboxes well be chewing through that but if you have any further thoughts let us know.

Content Creators Earn Over 50M Through Steam Workshop Can Now Earn - Link Fri, 14 Nov 2014 22:41:24

When we launched the Workshop late in 2011 we expected that it would grow but not that it would grow this much this quickly. So far the total payments made to individuals for the creation of in-game items sold in Team Fortress 2 Dota 2 and Counter-Strike Global Offensive have passed 57 million. This money was earned by over 1500 contributors spread out across 75 countries. ltbrgt ltbrgtltdiv classquotbb_h1quotgtNew Curated Workshopsltdivgt The limitation of paid revenue-generating Workshops to Valve content has been an unfortunate consequence of the sheer number of challenges required in order to scale to a global audience of creators and players.

The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company. Last year after something Proteus developer Ed Key mentioned on Twitter we noticed that copies of our game Frozen Synapse were being sold on several sites that we didnrsquot recognise. Thatrsquos not a pleasant moment for any developer it instantly feels like someone is making a cheeky profit at your expense. The persistent background buzz of piracy is one thing but another company profiting from our games without our knowledge is an entirely different sensation. Itrsquos important to check these things out though so we emailed the sites in question to ask them if they had a valid distribution agreement with us and if they could show us a copy. Fast2Play Kinguin and G2Play are sites which are all owned by a company called 7 Entertainment. Fast2Play is a store where keys are sold to customers whereas Kinguin is a ldquomarketplacerdquo which allows users to sell keys between themselves. G2A are a separate entity their business also has both store and marketplace components. All of these sites had listings for the game but were unable to supply any proof that they were genuine copies that we had authorised. We had never received a share of sales from any of them. Fast2Play immediately responded to our enquiry by saying simply ldquoProduct has been disabled on the store.rdquo I asked them if this constituted an admission of illegal activity to which I received no reply. Frozen Synapse remained on sale on the rest of their sites until several days later when more unanswered emails prompted its short-term removal. It was at that point that Game Informer decided to write about the story interviewing Ed Key and I about it httpwww.gameinformer.combnewsarchive20140328retailer-scam-resells-humble-bundle-games-reaps-profit.aspx 7 Entertainment then responded to the article httpwww.gameinformer.combnewsarchive201403297-entertainment-updates-terms-to-prohibit-the-resale-of-humble-bundle-keys.aspx It was at that point that I decided to leave things. Wersquod achieved a commitment from them to stop selling keys from Humble Bundles for profit a concept which was pretty much universally panned by customers and developers alike. The traditional indie response to situations like this is to spend our limited resources elsewhere specifically on things which directly benefit legitimate customers. However some recent developments have caused me to renew my interest. G2A and 7 Entertainment have taken out some very high-profile sponsorships with a particular focus on esports and Twitch streaming. This kind of activity can be profoundly powerful in establishing the legitimacy of a brand it seems to partially explain G2Arsquos rapid growth Itrsquos not just indies who have tangled with the key resellers. Ubisoft got into a difficult situation with Far Cry 4 keys which were purchased with stolen credit cards and then resold via Kinguin and G2A. Kinguin responded by effectively blaming EA and then appealing to gamers ldquowho simply donrsquot want to pay publisher suggested pricesrdquo. As many players had bought their keys via reselling sites believing that they were legitimate Ubisoft were then forced to backpedal. Polygon published a comprehensive look at the matter and revealed the confused chaotic nature of key marketplaces. Apparently nothing has changed since the original Game Informer article publishers and developers ignoring the situation has simply allowed these sites to grow. Irsquoll begin by taking a look at the legality of reselling then move on to some developer perspectives and finally conclude with a few thoughts of my own. Is it legal The question of legality here is paradoxically simple and complex. If you believe that the EULArsquos which Valve Humble and other distributors use are valid and enforceable then reselling is clearly prohibited. If not then the situation is far more vague. If yoursquore content with that as a summary then please feel free to skip this long section and continue at ldquoThe Indie Perspectiverdquo below If yoursquod like a full exploration of the legal issues then read onhellipI now wish Irsquod written this in Twine. I spoke to Tilly McAdden and Alex Tutty from Sheridans law firm in the UK. Tilly and Alex specialise in games and technology they deal with these issues on a daily basis. Could you give me a general summary of the issues here For the purposes of these answers we will use the terms ldquosellrdquo and ldquosalerdquo etc. but in fact what we are talking about is paying money for a key which provides access to a piece of software which is covered by a licence. More specifically in relation to downloads and software keys when you buy these in order to use them you need to download the software which involves making a copy of it. The unauthorised reproduction or copying of proprietary software products in most cases amounts to copyright infringement. This is because generally speaking all uses of the software like many other copyright protected products physical and digital require the express permission of the rights holder. So it follows that if the desired use of the game such as reselling is omitted from the End User Licence Agreement ldquoEULArdquo then it cannot be used in that way without further authorisation from the rights holder. Or alternatively where the EULA does include terms which permit the further reproduction of the software or game you can indeed make a further copy as long as it is used within the prescribed terms of the EULA. At the end of the day any use of the software or game outside the specific terms of the EULA would not be permitted and in the instances of any transfer which involves making another copy would amount to

But it will -- and not too long from now. This year39s Oculus Connect is the final significant pre-launch event for the company and so Gamasutra sat down with VP of product Nate Mitchell to discuss his expectations for its introduction. quotIt39s exciting I feel like we are on the precipice of a couple different thingsquot said Mitchell. With the November introduction of the new Gear VR there39s quotmobile VR going out on a consumer levelquot on top of the quotsustained presence and the next-gen VR gaming that we39ve been talking about for three years. That39s exciting.quot But when asked what kind of expectations he has for consumers to actually buy the devices he hedged a bit. While he has hopes toward quothopefully making VR a little more mainstreamquot with actual sale of Oculus39 products he admitted the company isn39t quite sure how many people are going to take up VR and just what they might ultimately do with it. quotIt39s exciting. We39ll see. We39re going to learn a lot in this first generation of VRquot Mitchell said. quotWe have lofty goalsquot he said. quotWe39d love to change the world as fast as possible.quot But he seemed to be aware that this may not be as easy as real VR devotees make it sound. quotAt the end of the day I think that if you look at many of the most successful consumer hardware products of all time most of them sold in the very low millions of units in their first year -- especially new product categories things like Kindle and iPod. They sold in the hundreds of thousands in their first generation.quot quotThe barrier of entry in terms of price is something we need to dropquot he admitted. While the price of the Rift is not yet known we do know that competitor PlayStation VR will sell for approximately the price of a new video game console and we also know that a fairly beefy PC is required to use the Rift. He admitted also that the products don39t always immediately connect with audiences. When it comes to the current iteration Gear VR quotEven after people try it they say 39This is amazing. I am not sure why I want this in my life.39quot What39s the answer to that quotThe other big thing that people need is content.quot Oculus has been investing in games of course and also founded initiatives like its Story Studio which produced the impressive Henry demo showcased at Oculus Connect. And that39s also why there39s a year between the launch of the Innovator Edition of Gear VR and its consumer version -- comments echoed by Samsung in our interview about the product. Henry But the company also intends to lean heavily on independent developers to innovate on its platform one of the best pieces of news out of the show is that when the product becomes commercial there will be a quotConceptsquot area on the Oculus storefront for devs to post works-in-progress. In other words Oculus Share isn39t dead and you don39t need a slick commercial game to connect with the Oculus audience. This should both help continue to foster innovation in VR game design via idea-sharing and keep vested commercial interests from completely controlling the marketplace. Developers too will be able to get feedback on their early work from peers and players both. There39s another advantage to keeping things open quotDifferent types of content brings different audiencesquot said Mitchell. quotAudiences make the ecosystem better for developers.quot quotWe39re going to see a lot of indie developers in the space in general because so many indie developers believe and they can afford to take a riskquot Mitchell said. quotGenerally I expect a lot of indies to be successful because their budgets are lower and they believe in the dream.quot quotIf we can sell enough that developers start being successful and they can reinvest in the systemquot he said quotwe can start the cycle and kickstart the chicken and the egg problem. I think we can make this thing into a thriving ecosystem.quot Oculus Touch In fact Mitchell expects small-scale games to be the norm as the platform launches the economics may prevent anything else. It39ll be quothard to do a 5 6 7 million dollar game because the audience isn39t there yetquot he said. But if developers quotcan sell to 30 40 50 percent of this community who is so hungry for these Touch games these Rift gamesquot they will find major success he thinks. So is the audience for Rift indistinguishable from its development community Mitchell doesn39t think so. quotSuddenly if you39re a consumer and you39re listening it sounds like 39I39m ready to buy this thing.39 I think there39s a big audience that39s going to come.quot But those big 39ifs39 linger quotPrice is going to be one of the biggest barriers to entry. It39s just not going to be some insane insane console launch but if we can build this thing year over year and keep growing the community and the ecosystem then we can make VR that changes the world.quot Related Jobs 09.26.15 3D Artists 09.26.15 Unreal Programmer 09.25.15 Data Scientist 09.25.15 Associate Product Manager View All Jobs Top Stories Next News Story View All 254666 newswire viewnews254666How_will_the_Rift_really_do_We_talk_to_Oculus_Nate_Mitchell.php Loading Comments

The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company. GameSoundCon recently conducted its annualsurvey of audio professionals in the game industry asking questions about compensation use of live musicians contract terms and other issues affecting the game audio industry. The results are compiled in the Game Audio Industry Survey the most comprehensive survey of its kind in the game industry. Our goal was to We ran our 21-question survey from July 29 to Aug 13 2015 and promoted the survey heavily via social media and other game and music industry web sites and received 622 responses. Because of the stratified nature of the game industry itself we broke out the data across large budget games professionally produced casualsmall scale games and indy games. Of course it is impossible to draw a sharp line between the three categories outlined above. Nevertheless we believe it serves as a useful distinction so that wersquore not comparing the compensation from Activision or Microsoft with that of a 3-person dev company making an iPhone game in their basement. The Survey covered 6main topics covering 1 Compensation 2 Work and EnvironmentGetting Gigs 3 Additional Compensation BonusesRoyalties 4 Use of Live Musicians Middleware 5 Contract Terms PROs 6 Education Of the over 600 responses 591 were deemed usable we have compiled and analyzed the results. Note that ldquoproject feesrdquo or ldquoSalariesrdquo areexcludingany optional payments such as bonuses royalties profit sharing etc or any other benefits such as 401k matching health care etc. Some of the highlights One thing that caught our attention Compensation had two definite peaks one at around 50000 and one significantly higher in the150000 range. There is a correlation between those higher salaries and management or creative direction i.e. ldquoAudio Directorrdquo and reflects the very competitive salaries for those with the requisite skills and experience and also shows great career growth potential in the field. This also explains why surveys like the Gamasutra annual salary survey tends to show pretty high numbers for audio professionals since the senior-level audio directors and top-shelf composers are more likely to have attended gdc and therefor participated in the Gamasutra survey. The other thing that caught our attention was the continued underrepresentation of those identifying as female in game audio a trait sadly in line with the rest of our industry. Although female representation did double from 2014 it still hovers at an unacceptably low 7 Conclusions It is difficult to draw generalization from such a broad and diverse industry. Itrsquos clear however that top video game composers and sound designers with the right skills and experiencecan command top dollar for both large-scale projectsXbox Playstation large PC titles etc. and smaller-scale games despite the highly competitive nature of the industry.

Schroeder on 092415 031100 pm 10 comments The following blog post unless otherwise noted was written by a member of Gamasutras community. The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company. Previous PostEverything I Learned About Computer Games I Didnrsquot Learn at Yale 1981. Manycomputer games were home-grown anddistributed on audio cassette tapesstuffed in plastic sandwich bags with sparse photocopied instructions. I was four years out of college and seeking creative employment. Reading ads for such games in the budding computer hobbyist magazines like Creative Computing Byte and Compute I wondered if any of these odd new machines could reproduce the thrills I experienced in the arcade corners of the local taverns and 7-11rsquos as I talked aboutin my previous post. Could I play Donkey Kong at home Could I write something like Donkey Kong at home and get others to play it in their homes And needing a job I wondered ndash Is anyone making money doing this Which of the machines described sobreathlesslyin the magazineswere going to stick around The Tandy Radio Shack TRS-80 The Commodore PET The Texas Instruments TI-994a The Atari 400 The Commodore VIC-20 The Timex Sinclair 1000 Or the Apple II I couldnrsquot afford to buy any of them. If the nearby Seattle Central Community College had stocked their computer lab with something other than Apple IIrsquos would I have written my first game Crisis Mountain for that type of computer Yes of course I would have. But that lab had Apple IIrsquos and so that was the mountain I began to climb. Signing up for a lab course that granted me access to those Apple IIrsquos I explored the nooks and crannies of that amazing machine looking for the canvas on which I could try to re-create Donkey Kong. The two text screen pages No. The two Lo-Res graphics pages No too chunky. The two High-Res graphics pages Ah-Ha There were the tiniest dots I quickly wrote a game loop in AppleBASIC that mimicked the bones of Donkey Kong in High-Res graphics ndash it was a jerky little line running back and forth among rolling dots. The movement on the screen was clearly not fast enough to recreate the excitement of Donkey Kong. AppleBASIC didnrsquot go deep enough. So I soaked up every book I could find in the computer lab and taught myself 6502 machine code. There werenrsquot many tools to make this process easier but those that I found were precious. Thank you Roger Wagner Thank you CallA.P.P.L.E Thank you Gibson Light Pens Computers are now so deeply woven into our culture I strain to remember how they astonished me at the time. But all this was new Forgive the clichndashbut it was a golden age ndash my golden age. Andfor this creative introvertit would last only a fewyears ending far too quickly. Because eachbit each byte each pixel each click of the speaker each check of the joystick was mine and mine alone. To each of these features I had direct and exclusive access at a permanent address. Everything stayed where I put it. To this day if you play the original Crisis Mountain every byte in your computer is there in exactly the same place as it was on my computer. Between me and an audience this was as close as I would ever get to a Vulcan mind-meld. How would a running figure on screen ldquoknowrdquo where the solid ground was How would a rolling boulder ldquoknowrdquo where and how it could alter its path There were no tools to automate the relationships between screen co-ordinates and the behavior of animated images. The computer accepted only raw numbers and every bit of every number was precious so pencil and paper were essential to figuring all thisout. Above and Below Here I am giving structure tothe action on the screen by graphingcalculatingand condensing huge lists of numberson paper. Then I wouldenterthese numbers into the computer one at a time. I completed Crisis Mountain and got my first advance on royalties from Synergistic Software. It was one of the proudest moments of my life. I bought an Apple II for myself and took it home. Now ndash how could I make my second game even better What would I write next To be continued... --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- These are my memories... Growing up in a world with three TV channels and paper mail... My years writing some of the earliest 8-bit games CRISIS MOUNTAINDINO EGGS SHORT CIRCUIT...

The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company. The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment is a 501c3 non-profit videogame museum located in downtown Oakland. We host playable exhibits of significant works along a theme and free programming classes for kids and adults. Our goal is to inspire the next generation of game developers. The MADE is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to move to a larger facility. On September 27 2011 the MADE opened its doors for the first time. All we really had was a bunch of old games and one large collection donatedfrom a friend of mine names Miah. Between my collection and Miah39s we maybe had 100 games and 20 consoles and computers. Maybe. Today the MADE has over 5000 games and over 100 consoles and computers. Though we focus exclusively on console and computer games we39ve also accrued a large number of board games books strategy guides posters and even two full upright arcade machines. You can see in the above photos that we were not much more than a room with some stuff on tables at the start. The photo above is one of our first events RJ Mical speaking about his career. At the time we were horribly embarassed because we had empty seats. Today the MADE regularly has standing room only events. Thus it39s time for a post mortem no What went right Location While it has been a bit of a double edged sword we have to come down on the side of our current location being something that went right. You39ll see that we also put this under what went wrong but it39s first under what went right because we feel the bad outweighed the good. For a start and I would recommend this for anyone starting any kind of business anywhere our location was cheap. We got it for 1.07 a square foot. In the San Francisco Bay Area for full service office space that includes power this is an obscenely low price. We were very lucky to get this price and we got it because the realtorowner of the building wanted to be nice to us to grow a longer term relationship. Since that time the building has been sold and is currently undergoing gentrification at a high rate of speed. We could never have gotten this space this close to BART and city hall and bars and food today. It would have cost double. Primarily this was a result of... Timing When it comes to planning things out timing is never on your plate. Sure you build schedules you set dates but in terms of actual timing as in the element of being in the right place at the right time you can39t plan for that. And yet we managed to get our space open right as the recession was beginning to recede. Today Oakland and San Francisco are packed with 2.50 to 4 per square foot spaces. Heck in SF full service office space can go for as high as 30 per square foot And we39re just sitting here in Oakland paying about 2200 a month in rent. Not bad Volunteers We39ve been very fortunate to have some of the best volunteers you could possibly ask for. Especially in recent years our voluntees have been willing to go the extra mile and do all the horrible things that need to be done to run a business on a shoestring budget. They39ve stuffed envelopes for Kickstarter rewards moved items in my car from as far away as Benicia and have rarely complained or fussed. Additionally some of our volunteers have crazy good skills like art design programming or even speaking Japanese. These have been exceptionally helpful to have on hand particularly when the time came to deal with Fujitsu around our Habitat resurrection project. Without our volunteers we would have nothing and never be open. Because of their enthusiasm and hard work we39re still an all-volunteer run organization with no payroll. Of course lack of a payroll is a bit of a challenge and that39s why volunteers appear twice in this post mortem. Industry enthusiasm I have to say everyone in the industry has been incredibly supportive and helpful when it comes to advice ideas and stuff. We39ve gotten a ton of donations from folks in the industry and they always bring us amazing things we couldn39t have acquired otherwise. From E3 kiosks to help us show games off to design documents to boxed copies of games and figures the industry has been very supportive when it comes to helping us along the way. Specifically the luminaries in this industry have come out of the woodwork to show their support. While this doesn39t always mean a check it almost always means a Tweet a blog post a phone call intro to someone important or even just an email to say hey keep up the good work Without the support of industry veterans we39d be lost. A big thank you to everyone out there who39s helped us. Stuff The amount of items that have come in for donation is truly staggering. I could never have guessed we39d get as much as we have. From relics like the GamePro donation in November of 2011 to individual donations from closets and garages to actual outright storage lockers being emptied into our facility we39re always seeing new donations. And not just from the outside. We39ve been able to spend a little here and a little there on local outlets to buy up items they39d never sell in a million years. Just this past weekend in fact we spent 50 on strategy guides and old programming books at the SF Public Library book sale. That money helps the local libraries and it39s helped to add over 50 books to our collections and a Z80 dev kit to boot We39re humbled by the amazing items we39ve had donated. When we put out the call the items show up. One particularly important person here at Gamasutra even entrusted his Nuon player to us.
