Getting Your Independent Game Noticed in 2013

Mike Rose  |  UK Editor, Gamasutra


Location: Congress Saal 3

Format: Lecture
Track: Independent Games Summit
Vault Recording: Video


With so many indie games doing the rounds these days, it's so much more difficult to get noticed than it used to be. Gamasutra editor Mike Rose has watched the indie scene evolve over the last several years, and offers ideas and inspiration for how devs in 2013 can go about standing out from the crowd. The talk involves analysis of the sorts of titles that are currently covered by the mainstream media, including why they are picked up and how a relatively new studio can aim to get in on the action.

Takeaway

Attendees will gain an insight into the various marketing angles that they may not have considered, as well as coming away with a better understanding of how they should be dividing their time up when it comes to shouting about their games.

Intended Audience

The talk will be aimed at both new indie studios who have no idea how to get started with talking about themselves and their games, and more experienced indies who might still be waiting to catch a break.
