So I am trying to learn how to estimate the cost and scheduling of game development. I know once you have a GDD completed you can than do this by using TDD or tech design Document. The only thing is I dont know anything about programming, art or audio to know how long it would take so it is becoming hard to figure in the cost and time needed. Does anyone know or can point me to a site or book where I can learn it. Also trying to get this done so I can finish my business plan.
Your Technical Director can write the TDD and estimate the programming.
Your Art Director can estimate the art.
Your Audio Director can estimate the audio.
Tell us in vague terms how large a game you are making, with a vague description of the extent of the graphics and audio.
Then we can give you a vague estimate of the cost.
