How I Got My Publishing Deal: Student Game Development Success Stories


Worried about what to do post-graduation? Making the transition from school into professional game development is an intimidating one, but our panel of success stories can offer loads of insight. From Kim Smith (Portal designer), to Kellee Santiago (ThatGameCompany president, and Flower producer), and Paul Bellezza and Matt Korba (creators of The Misadventures of PB Winterbottom), these developers all made names for themselves in different ways, and they did it right out of school. They will share their experiences, and attendees can also pick their brains in a Q&A period.
