Whether starting your first company or your third, this talk is for you. Dino Patti has started three companies during his time in the industry: Playdead, JUMPSHIP and coherence. He's talked to every possible publisher, and been through the process of both creating games and companies several times.
In this talk, Dino will walk through the journey of starting a successful games company from start to finish, and talk about what needs to be done at which time, what priorities should be, deal structures, and emotional states and pitfalls.
From the starting idea through the first game's release and beyond, Dino will share what he wishes he knew when he started out in the industry–including the crucial differences between your first company and subsequent ones.
Attendees will receive invaluable advice on the process of starting their own games company based on Dino's vast experience in doing just that. They will learn about what they need to and when they need to do it, priorities, deal structures, and emotional states and pitfalls.
This is for indie developers looking to start their own games company.
