GameDaily Connect isn’t too far off now, and those looking forward to being on the receiving end of some keen publishing insight from experts will be pleased to note this year’s line-up of eminent panelists. With the likes of Jam City, CNET, and Unity Technologies in attendance, the event’s publishing track will give you the tools that you need to source the right publisher and to ensure that your game launches with the right tone needed for success. 

GameDaily Connect tickets are now on sale, and it’ll run from August 27 to August 29 at the Disneyland Hotel. Whether it’s tips on pitching that you need, advice on how to take your title cross-platform with the right publisher, or just how to ensure that your audience remains as engaged as possible, our panels will have you covered. 

As a developer, distribution can be one of your major headaches once you’ve actually gotten your game out into the world. Making sure that the process is as seamless and as headache-free as possible for your team is tough, and that’s where Bytedance and Unity Technologies come in. Unity’s Global Head of Content, Maxim de Wit, will be moderating a panel on alternative game distribution methods featuring Bytedance’s Senior Director and the CEO of APPTUTTi. If you’re keen to learn more about how to reach potential players across international and emerging markets, then these industry veterans will be putting on a panel that you don’t want to miss. 

Other hot-button topics informed by the publishing lens are engagement and the ongoing monetization of games. Once you have released your title, you’re going to want to take steps to maintain its longevity. 

Hitting the ground running with the right publisher from Day One can go a long way. Join Matt Casamassina (Co-Founder of Rogue Games), Dan Ackerman (Senior Managing Editor at CNET), and other industry veterans for their panel on the different publishing approaches involved in taking a game to market, how to pick the right publisher for you, and also what to keep in mind beyond immediate pre-launch issues like funding when making those decisions.
