Looking for a Good Game Development Company

I had posted this is the wrong section and was told to try here instead.

I'm looking to find a company to develop a game for me but I'm find trouble finding one that is reputable.

I had originally been looking into free lancers but decided it would probably be better to go with a well established company if possible.

Is there any companies you guys can recommend?

I wonder how many developers have contacted you so far.

You might want to explain what you mean by a "Good Game Development Company", I dont reckon many developers here (me included) would consider ourselves "good", "bad", "ugly" or otherwise.

Be more precise about the kind of developer you need, referencing similar projects or a list of features your game requires, and I am sure you will get a better response.

I am certainly not interested, I dont believe we are "reputable" and "good" enough for your project.

Good luck.

Thanks for your reply nvx, I hope I didn't offend you?

I just meant by "good"/"reputable" maybe someone you've used before or can recommend

I'm looking to get a game made that is similar to Trenches in terms of the control and game play although the actual objectives and style that I have in mind are different.

What you may try doing is contacting a studio who has already attempted to copy Trenches, but I've got be honest here, we have had a dedicated team put more than 9 months into Trenches to make it what it is.

Creator of the hit games, Trenches and Stenches.

The big deal is not the 9 months to develop a quality product, the deal here is those people who pretend to hire someone to make their awesome game, they think if your game cost 0.99$, the programming cost should be lower too, but every developer here knows the truth, you can't expect to hire a professional for less than 2k$ per month, plus an artist, musician, marketing.

The game industry is one of the most expensives out there, it's not cheaper to make a game, specially not a good one

Hi eskema, I understand what you mean and have experience developing apps myself I just don't seem to have the time anymore so I do understand the level of work involved.

Thanks :-)
