now i have a group with my friends to start a new project.
i have finished basic gdd and i want to start a project and i know if project succeeds it can have good benefit. but there is a problem.
i dont know how can i satisfy my group about money. now i can give them no money because there is no budget.
foe example if i say everyone is going to get equal part of benefit there will not be justice because there will be no diffrence between hardworking and lazy and good ones will have no and high quality ones and motivation will be lost.(i think it was one biggest problem of communist societies).
if i say you will have 10 percent of last income i think it will be hard too because what happen if i wanted to add a good person too group, i think it will stay nothing or if i say i will give certain amout of money like 500$.
what if the game sold less i expected or what if game sold much more and they will think i screwed them:D.
i really dont know what to do.
what really good indie teams do? should i find a good financial specialist or there will be good rules to manage them and make an easy contraction with them.
and to explain more, what about investing? for example i added some money to project and bought a cheap motion capture. how should i manage to return investigation to everyone in group and out of group?
thank you for helping
