Baixar para ler offline

Delivered at Casual Connect Europe 2016

American football wasn’t a sport when it was invented; it was a game created by one man and played by just two teams. Today, indie games built by small teams have the power to become tomorrow’s most popular eSports. This session will explore the history of eSports, tactics for designing and building competitive games, and what it takes for indie games to become tomorrow’s sports.
