This thread has gotten quite long and I haven't read everything so I apologize if this is a repeat. What bothers me the most is people stating they are a studio when it's quite obvious they are working from their parents' basement or in a single bedroom apartment. Unless you've registered your business, are remitting taxes, and have dedicated office space - you are not a studio. The biggest dead giveaway that you are not a studio is the fact that you can't pay me. Studios have access to funding and/or an income from their previous game(s). Lastly, if you are not of legal age to enter into a contract (usually 18) don't even bother. I will never work (even free work) if I'm not protected by a contract. In short, don't lie about being a studio when you are just one person with an idea.
