Agreed, that's way too high for London. London does pay more compared to the rest of the UK but a typical web developer with 3yrs experience does not get £90k for working in London. I've seen under half that for cool startups and never above 2/3rds that for someone with only 3 years experience.

But then a contractor can earn much more.  The low end is £350 per day up to around £650 per day.

That's comparing apples and oranges though. Salaries are usually lower than contractor rates because they're more dependable, they include office costs and overheads, etc.

The base pay seems a bit high, but the location adjustment seems a bit paltry in comparison.

Overall, it's certainly high to me, but gamedev isn't exactly known to pay well.

I searched around a while on job sites ...

The range for "entry level" jobs pays $35,000 - $50,000 .

Experienced ( 5+ years ) .... $60,000 - $85,000 .

Management positions $95,000 - $140,000 .

 

All this depends on where you live, and are willing to travel.

 India is hiring for $400 - $1,200 a month !
