In an effort to kick things up a notch, a friend and I have just hired a team of iOS developers and designers in Pakistan to work on a game project for the next month.
This is a big turning point in the development of the iOS game business we’re trying to accelerate.
After a late night of Skype video interviews with several teams on the other side of the planet we decided to go ahead with with a company in Pakistan to develop our first outsourced App. Over the next 4-5 weeks we will be working with them to develop something that will hopefully turn into a big money maker for us.
It is super exciting to be on the hiring side of the table for a change. And this will free us both up to focus on the marketing and launch of the new game to ensure that we get as much exposure as we possibly can.
Putting our own money on the table increases the stakes as well since a failed project will mean money out of our pockets instead of just lost time.
