Session Name:

Indie Development & The Economy of Favors


Is being an Indie developer really Indie anymore? Indies are increasingly up against with triple-A products in a global market. Indie game development is becoming less and less a solo endeavor as local tribes of indies support one another to accomplish the same tasks as massive organizations. Learn how to access shared resources of the indie community like marketing, press, legal aid, etc. Come see how asking for favors engenders investment in the success of the project, fosters relationships, and establishes a quid pro quo for future favors. Theresa Duringer will discuss the challenges, risks, and rewards of participating in the emerging economy of favors in indie development.
