Speakers at the GameOn III conference will answer questions about what makes or breaks a game at the congress and exhibition centre LITEXPO, Lithuania on September 16th and 17th.
Tomek Gop, who worked on the first two Witcher games, Lords of the Fallen and now Ancestors will share how the story for Ancestors was inspired by historical events, flavoured with fictional characters to add its own twist to the narrative layer.
The game narrative topic will be expanded by Wojciech Pazdur, head of The Farm 51 studio. The newest game from the studio, Get Even, aims to create a unique tale that could only be told through the video game medium. Wojciech Pazdur will share how his team approached challenges and obstacles during the games 3-year development cycle.
Indie developers will love to hear Lance James from Versus Evil talk about taking risks with indie game development. Lance will talk about game developers’ successes and failures with a focus on how ideas, creativity and passion make great games.
However, developing a breath-taking game is only the beginning. GameOn III conference will cover topics such as marketing and monetisation, which are just as important as the game development.
Teddy Florea currently manages Nordic Game, one of Europe’s largest gaming conferences. His presentation will focus on the best marketing tools available for securing game visibility leading to investments. Relying on qualitative data and in-depth interviews, this interactive session will aim at bettering the methodological approach taken by a studio in order to maximise their chances of securing round one funding.
Audra McIver from Plan of Attack will also bring her 14+ years of experience in the games marketing field. Her session will focus on the aspects of marketing which must be considered and planned for in order to get the game the attention it deserves.
