Overview: Licensed games have undergone a renaissance over the past few years, evolving from quick cash grabs to become some of the most interesting and talked about releases each year. While licensed games like 'Spider-Man' and 'Star Wars' grab most headlines, this panel will explore the possibilities that smaller studios and indie developers might have in licensed games. Using the development and production of 'Reigns: Game of Thrones' as a case study, the panel will explore the perspectives from the developer Nerial, the publisher Devolver Digital and the licensor HBO.
