Any advice for Contracting work?


I get my contract tomorrow. This will be my first “big” job in the video game industry.

Is there anything I should ask for, or anything I should beware of?

Looks like the team leader has tried to sell the company a few times during development.

I am worried i will get stuck with some new owner, and be obligated to work for free for the rest of my life.

Have you never heard, “Contracts are meant to be broken…”?

Only suggestion I can make is, before you sign it, read it! The harder they try to sell it, the more likely your going to get to work for free. And if they tell you it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread or they’re only looking out for “your” best interest or we’ll be rich- walk away.

If it sounds too good to be true… It probably is.
