Rami Ismail (Vlambeer, Levelling The Playing Field, gamedev.world, The Habibi's) has traveled the world for a decade, and has helped many hundreds of studios and games reach their goals or funding - no matter where the studio is, or what the size of the team is.
In this rapid 60 minute talk he will explain in honest, concise, and actionable ways why (independent) developers often approach their business case from the wrong end, how to think about pitches, what to say, and what not to say, how publishers use the word "budget" to trick you into thinking about money differently (and how to properly budget), how to think about risk and opportunity, what mistakes independent developers make over and over, and how to put together a sensible business case.
Attendees will learn a honest perspective on the business of independent game development, and be able to avoid common mistakes in building their business case.
Independent developers worldwide, who are looking to learn about the business of independent game development.
