|Overview:||If you've never considered developing plugins from your code, or selling assets from your game, you're missing out on a huge opportunity!

This talk will answer the following questions: Is it worth it to develop and sell plugins and assets? What is the market opportunity for plugins and assets? How and where can you sell plugins? What benefits and downsides are involved in selling parts of your code and game assets? What changes to your game planning and production pipeline should be made to incorporate plugins? How can you re-think game design in a modular format to incorporate plugin development? And most importantly, how much money can you make?|
