I just sent letter of inquiry to an IP holder about licensing a property for a future game design. I have some intriguing ideas for the way I’d take a game with this property, but I haven’t done anything concrete on it yet aside from jotting down some notes in my idea file. I don’t want to put a bunch of work into something that may never see the light of day if the license isn’t available, but I’d love, love, love to do something with this.
I’ve got a short list of publishers I’ll approach if the license pans out. The few I have in mind are all experienced with license properties and have proven track records. Good folks to work with, too.
I’m a little nervous and a lot excited, and there’s a spider on you right now.
