Gaming industry status reports
« on: April 18, 2013, 06:56:17 AM »
I thought some of you might be interested in this.

Steve Jackson games just published their yearly Stakeholders Report.  If you are interested in knowing what a gaming company is up to it's a good read.
Also Evil Hat, doing their best to be transparent, just published their Q1 2013 sales figures.

If you know of any other gaming companies that are talking about how they are doing, please add them here.

I asked Fred at Evil Hat if he had sales going back longer and if they are available.  (Just in a comment on the 2013 sales)

He put pointed me to sales from 2007 onwards.  He really believes in being transparent!

Thread necromancy!

SJgames 2013 report is in for those interested in the hobby as a business.

EDIT: And an interview with Steve Jackson.

EDIT II:  And following a discussion somewhere else.  Here is the Mongoose 2013 report [ http://blog.mongoosepublishing.co.uk/?p=738 ].  It talks about amongst other things being so successful with a kickstarter that you loose money.
