IGDA Las Vegas October 2020 Virtual Meeting feat. Kellen Voyer

For the first time ever, a comprehensive survey of over 35 recent indie publishing agreements has been undertaken. This talk builds on Kellen’s 2020 GDC presentation and details the survey’s results through a statistical analysis of publishing agreement terms. Attendees will learn the meaning of key publishing agreement clauses and gain an understanding of what the average publishing agreement looks like in 2020. They will learn the average advance amount, how common a 50/50 revenue share is, how frequently sequel rights are granted and more. In addition, Kellen will discuss approaches for negotiating certain key clauses and how publishers have responded to developers rejecting terms on the basis that “it’s not market”. Bio: Kellen is a California and British Columbia called lawyer based in Vancouver, B.C. and manages a boutique law firm, Voyer Law, focused on advising video game studios on U.S. and Canadian legal matters from a cross-border perspective. He is active within the video game community in North America and represents over 70 studios across Canada, the U.S. and Europe. He is oddly passionate about the nuances of video game publishing agreements.
