Iain is the CEO of Asian based publisher Another Indie, he's made all the mistakes so you don't have to.
The change from 7 or 8 years ago, from a time when there were virtually no indie game publishers within Taiwanese developers' reach, to nowadays the business in the community seems to be very active, is pretty noticable. Nonetheless, for the people who are just considering jump into indie dev, or for the devs that are making their 1st or 2nd game, the information gap is still there. Different regions, platforms, genres, even game themes warrents differences in their publishing situations; moreover, the strategies and strengths also differ from publisher to publisher.
We will be discussing these topics from different indie publishers' point of views: the impact of new platforms and opportunities on the market; the currently available promotional avenues for developers, and how to work with publishers on these fronts; what do the publishers think about the indie scene in the near future? ...and more.
This panel features David Martinez from Raw Fury and Iain Garner from Another Indie, and will be moderated by Jung-Sheng Lin. If you are interested in indie publishing and the prospects of indie scene, then this is the session for you. Most importantly -- bring your own questions!
