We Can't Afford to Focus: A New Way of Thinking for Multi-Platform

Jani Kahrama  |  CEO, Secret Exit Ltd.


Location: Europasaal

Format: Lecture
Track: Smartphone & Tablet Games Summit
Vault Recording: Video


So far we've kept things simple: make a great game on iOS, port to Android later. However, with chart positions now being subject to purchase by big players who can afford to do so - mobile is no longer an even playing field for quality content. With the above realization, we've radically changed our plan for the next game in our pipeline, Turbo Dismount. It has now become something totally different - a multi-platform project with a new approach for making each release support the larger whole. This talk will present Secret Exit's contemplations, reasoning and decisions in Q1-2 of 2013.

Takeaway

A chance to see one developer fully exposing the strategic decisions in the changing industry, and a possible new multi-platform business model for small studios.

Intended Audience

Other indie developers, publishers and VCs. No prerequisite knowledge is necessary.
