Session Name: Dream Daddies and Fearful Fathers: How Indies Can Cope with Being Terminally Online
Speaker(s): Leighton Gray
Company Name(s): Game Grumps
Track / Format: Production & Team Management
Overview: This GDC 2019 talk will feature real-time interaction with the speaker through online chat messaging during its scheduled broadcast. As a game developer in 2019, your biggest asset and your most towering obstacle is the internet. And especially as an indie, you don't have the luxury of just logging off when things get overwhelming. So how do you keep your thumbs on the pulse of the internet while also staying sane? Through the perspective of the internet-induced nervous breakdown Leighton Gray had in the wake of Dream Daddy's success and her desperate clawing back to emotional normalcy and understanding, she'll talk about how to weather success (and failure) by cultivating a healthier relationship with the internet.
