Alexis Kennedy founded Failbetter Games, grew it, and moved on, leaving a stable, happy, and respected studio which just won GI.biz's inaugural award for "Best Places To Work" in the UK. This is a talk about the lessons learned in that process, and the lessons taken into a second studio founding, focusing on war stories and practical advice.
How to found, grow, and thrive as an indie studio with an eye on the long term.
