An interesting article on Gamasutra talking about what venture capitalists look for when investing in a video game developer. Since this is MMORPG.com, I think it's relevant that the types of games a developer is making do not make any difference. It seems to be a performance based system, not a values based system.
From the Article:
Since I'm a venture capitalist, I'm often asked what I look for in a game company investment. I've had some good success in investing in this category, most notably Playdom and Kixeye, but this is still a difficult question to answer because investing isn't like giving a driving test. If a company checks all the boxes, it doesn't mean that I'll write a check. But there are a few things that I always do look for.
I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.
