Drawing for Games

Recently someone has approached me about drawing art (on a paid basis) for an online pet game. Should I ask for pay like it was a regular commission (i.e. one time fee)? If anyone has had any experience with this, I'd love to hear about it. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Update: Just letting you guys know that thanks for all the Lurapets warnings, but it wasn't them.

It's a lady who goes by "Trinity" on Furry Paws, who says she's planning on launching a pet game. My main confusion is whether to charge her like an individual or like a commercial business, since she may or may not actually create said game. So far she wants me to draw a "logo" (it's actually just a scene of dogs doing stuff). We haven't discussed prices yet, since I wanted to hear back from here first.

Update 2: Thanks for all the advice guys! I'll be treating this like a company account. If anyone has any input on what should be included in the contract, please let me know. That'd be great!
