In January 2011 Convolution introduced a new product to the gaming world, and the gaming world responded!

Let's take a quick quiz!

The Game Business Toolbox is

a) tragically named

b) a collection of office templates that make game design and video game business setup easier

c) A tool even a hobbyist can use to achieve better consistency and success

d) all the above

Well... just like high school, we'll go with D (although at least one person at Convolution disagrees with a :) )

Office templates may seem like the simplest things, but the reality of DOING a complex thing, like making a video game, is the simplest things, when well thought out, that make completing a project possible.  That's the philosophy behind the Game Business Toolbox.  Frankly, we found we needed some templates as we setup Convolution and began developing games.

We searched the internet, found some Game Design Templates (GDD), read and heard rumors about others, and found almost no business templates that really addresssed the needs of a game making company.  So, what did we do... we made them.  Then we thought, hey I'll bet there are others out there that can use these.

First, we ported them to 4 of the major Office packages, so you wouldn't have to waste time doing that.  Then we bundled them up in three different offerings so folks would have enough choice to be able to purchase those pieces that meet their needs specifically.  Finally we gave it an poorly chosen name (if you have a better one PLEASE shoot it over to me... our owner still thinks that name works!) and set it up for sale.

Well, the feedback has been fantastic!

Don't believe us?  Have a look for yourself...
