The Business of Games Masterclass

Business Of Games Workshop

There is a great deal of work that goes on behind the scenes to develop a game, but one important aspect that just doesn’t get enough love from indie devs is the business side of things. To assist local developers in getting the best start for their game, FTI have teamed up with eGroup to present The Business of Games Masterclass. Presented by Dr. Kate Raynes-Goldie, this session seeks to give you the business knowledge needed to turn your good game into a successful game.

This masterclass will cover the two fast growing market segments of the games industry — mobile and indie — explaining their business models, value chains and potential investment opportunities. The masterclass will also provide an overview of the Steam platform and provide an initial watch list for investors
