The Value of a Publisher in a Self-Publishing Era

Saturday, March 19
3:30PM - 4:30PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 5ABC
531 E 4th St

In today’s age of digital publishing, video game developers are no longer required to partner with publishers to get their games to customers. So why do some independently-funded developers still choose to use partners? This session will discuss what is required of global video game publishing on multiple platforms, including how content is chosen for featuring on different platforms and what sorts of activities are successful in bringing customers to games.
