Overview: Funding - there used to only be one way to find it in the game industry and that was through a publisher. Times are changing, especially in the mobile industry, and everyone from angel investors to traditional venture capital firms are starting to look at game developers as potential investments. Why take VC money? Where do you start? Who do you talk to? How do VC firms differ from publishers?
