Starting a traditional game studio is a challenge not for the faint-hearted. However, making it as an indie game studio making VR games is beyond challenging. It can be downright mystifying! Playful will share what it's learned over the years doing just that; everything from how to raise money, how to convince publishers to fund your games, how to manage a team that, no matter how talented, is facing a brand new industry with a steep learning curve, and how to create a sustainable culture on the leading edge of disruption. Come listen to how Playful signed a deal with Oculus to fund 'Lucky's Tale', which became the only game bundled with the Oculus Rift at launch ('EVE Valkyrie' was only for pre-orders), and how they raised $25 million in funding to make VR games.
Attendees will hear effective strategies for finding success and avoiding pitfalls as an indie VR game developer.
Game developers of all types who have entrepreneurial aspirations. This will be a high-level discussion focused on the business and strategy involved in making games for and/or starting a studio focused on the still nascent virtual reality market.
Title: Technical Director & Chair of OpenXR Working Group Company: Epic Games
