Section I MMO Constructor browser-based on-line games constructor

Is it possible to develop browser on-line game without budget of tens and hundreds thousand dollars? Is it possible to earn from a low-budget on-line game without a publisher? The answer to these questions is yes. Software for a browser game consists of big number of components that remain the same for different projects. Game development from scratch is re-inventing the wheel. If game components development is separated from game logics development and sent for outsourcing, if software improvement, mistakes correcting and servers administration are shifted over operator, budget of a project can be significantly decreased. Find out from the report about how a professional game developer can start own evening business and what risks possibly waylay.
