How Publishers Find, Mentor and Promote Indie Games
Friday, March 29 at 12pm in the Dragonfly Theatre
An uncountable number of games are released every year across a bevy of platforms. That doesn’t include early access titles and games-as-a-service which have disrupted the traditional release cycle. In this era of game development, there has never been more opportunity for developers and publishers nor has there been as much competition. What do indie developers need to do to stand out? What do publishers look for in these games? Once they find each other how do publishers help the developers? Find out the answers to these questions and more from representatives of Skybound Games, Beamdog and others.

Friday, March 29 at 1:30pm in the Dragonfly Theatre

Join a group of industry vets as they play Pitchstorm, a party game that puts you in the position of an unprepared writer pitching movies to the world’s worst executives. Each round, one player acts as the executive, while everyone else plays as a writer trying to pitch them the next Hollywood Blockbuster. Each player gets a semi-random movie, and has less than a minute to pitch their idea to the executive. Prepare of plenty of terrible ideas and audience interaction.
