    It depends on who you hire. I wouldn't be surprised if someone quoted $4K - 8K+.

    i think you can find something around $500 -> $1500
    it could go allot above , but it depends on where you will ask and who will do it.

    I am a game developer and I can tell you it will cost upwards of about $20,000 for a game like that. It's not just building a structure, you have graphics, admin panels, couple dozen DB tables, hosting, server, and many weeks of coding.

    However if you do it all yourself, it's free.

    I suggest learning some languages and build half of it yourself, and hire someone to fix your mistakes and to finish it. That way you can walk away paying around $7,000.

    You will be dealing with more than 100 files, and at least 200 functions.

    This game would not cost as much as many other games because it is a cheaP easy game to make and the large cost out of all this would be to support the game, because alot of people will not play past the first day of them making their account. As everyone says it is really who you hire for this job that will determine the price.
