Platforms Are People Too: The Importance of Finding Your Champion


Sustainable game development isn't just about making a great game, it's about making the right game, and finding your champion to help share it with the world. But why is that so important? And where do you start? And once you find your champion, how do you best arm them to most effectively fight for your game? With 10+ years of experience championing independent games (EGM/, PlayStation, Oculus), Suttner will guide you through the answers to these questions, sharing practical insights and anecdotes of how to think about and approach the individuals behind the big platforms, as well as press, publishers, and any potential partner, and explain why it's critical to the success of your game.
