Overview: How can a small dev team building a new IP stand a chance against the titans of the games industry? Cliff Bleszinski, Arjan Brussee and the team from Boss Key talk about their experience as a start-up studio competing with "the big guns" in the crowded shooter genre, and how it has affected the development of their game LawBreakers. From the ability to have close and constant interaction with the community, to taking advantage of the agility of a smaller team and making tough decisions about design and business models, this panel will address how to find your direction and identity in a world of giants.
