Session Name: Put Your Name on Your Game, a Talk by Bennett Foddy and Zach Gage
Speaker(s): Bennett Foddy, Zach Gage
Company Name(s): NYU Game Center, Independent
Track / Format: Independent Games Summit
Overview: Despite the onslaught of diverse and experimental work published on Steam and consoles every day, one significant taboo remains in indie games and it's not the one you would think: Indie designers don't sign their work. Unlike actors, musicians, intellectuals, painters, poets, writers, directors, and producers, game designers often publish behind the anonymity of a company, even when working alone. Why do they do this? Where did this norm come from? Who benefits from this situation? And why should it be changed?
