In this candid roundtable, game developers and publishers share their past and current experience on how to find / contact / pitch / follow up / close the deal with publishers. What worked and what didn't? What is the most important asset when pitching, a deck, a trailer or a prototype? How to create a lasting impression (in a good way!)? What kind of deal is acceptable or isn't? In this no-holds-barred discussion, we'll exchange our most embarrassing failures and highly improbable wins with an open heart and brutal honesty. Not for the faint of heart.
