Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Description:
Localizing your game is known as being a reason of a potential major increase of your revenue and international appeal. However, how to choose the right markets? How to give a chance to niche or emerging markets without taking risks? What is the experience of indie companies self-publishing their games versus global publishers? What kind of business analysis should you make to decide? Why fan base would not be the best way to localize a game? Which type of tool are used to be more efficient/saving cost? During this panel, 2 publishers and 2 developers will speak about their experience

Take Away
After this panel, you should have your own opinion on how to conquer the world with your game, in an effective manner :)

Audience Adressed: indie developers, big publishers, VR
