The Curriculum

DAY 1 – Being an Indie Today: From Starting to Running a Games Studio and What to Know

This entry session will present a legal road map through the most relevant topics an indie developer will encounter, from having the idea to developing and releasing the game.

DAY 2 – Developing and Releasing Your Game: Contracts, Community Management, and Consumer Protection

This session will address what an indie needs to do when developing and releasing a game. It will cover the stages of running a studio where you need to hire manpower or seek investments and/or other outside services to, for example, market or port your game.

DAY 3 – Intellectual Property and Content Restrictions

This session will address what content you can and cannot put in your game. As a game developer, your game and its content is your brand and value, so being able to foresee what you can place in your game as well as knowing how to prevent and enforce against others from unrightfully using your content is very important.
