    Slither.io would be pretty small back end TBH, it's majorly client side.

    What I've noticed about slither(I hate agario) is that they keep their servers to between 300-500 people each. So you could expect to have the same. A server capable of handling that, probably going to be around $60 a month for some discount providers, or $120ish for the more mainstream dedicated providers..

    As far as paying someone to Dev that game for you(saw your post in HAF) you're probably going to have buck up a couple thousand. I'd say any competent developer is going to be asking for 5k+ for something of that size.

    5k for decent developer for a unique game, not for servers.

    That is true. I read Slitherio was making the guy $100,000 a day so nice profits but a bit nervy spending fifteen grand a day
