|Session Name||Tooth and Tail: Building Community Within Open Game Development|
|Company Name(s)||Pocketwatch Games|
|Track / Format||Independent Games Summit|
Andy Nguyen will talk about how Pocketwatch Games leveraged free online tools to build community and generate excitement around a game in development. With a large development friendly community, Pocketwatch was able to supplement game development and expand their scope on the project, which would have been impossible on their own. Examples include: a community driven competitive scene, a network of supported streaming content, consistent testing and QA, constant player feedback and game balance data.
