Formal pitching to publishers is frequently discussed, but many publishing deals result from a more informal and personal process of back-and-forth discussion in which a pitch deck may never play any significant role. In this session, indie publisher Hooded Horse's President, Snow Rui, and CEO, Tim Bender, walk through how personal chats and mutual introductions have formed Hooded Horse's portfolio, and what advice can be offered to developers regarding pursuing personal outreach to publishers. The goal is to explore how such conversations can form a valuable additional process to pursue when looking for a publisher, as well as how the publishing deals that result from such contact can differ from more traditional approaches.
Attendees will receive a greater understanding of how informal publishing discussions arise and progress, and what developers can do to maximize the chances of finding a good publishing relationship from such contact.
The intended audience is developers interested in the potential for a publishing deal and additional processes to pursue one.
