What Every Mobile Indie Developer Needs to Know Before Publishing


Panelists will cover the top five hot topics mobile indie game developers should consider when working with a major publisher, including:

  1. Skin in the game -- what it takes mathematically for a big publisher to make an indie developer's game successful
  2. IP vs non IP -- the value and challenges of working with established brands
  3. Free-to-play vs premium -- the risks/rewards
  4. Casual vs core -- what game genre competition is out there
  5. Studio structure -- indie developers need to know if they have the bandwidth and resources for the game to work long-term
