Video Games Intelligence has announced today the launch of Independent’s Day, an afternoon of conference sessions and networking focused on indie mobile game development, on May 13th, prior to the start of their annual Mobile Gaming USA West conference in San Francisco on May 14-15th.
The keynote speech will be given by Wilson Kriegel, the former CRO of Draw Something creators OMGPOP. He currently serves as President of Paltalk, a leading provider of audio and video communications services.
“From the rising costs of user acquisition to the increased challenges of getting mobile games discovered on iOS and Android, indie game developers have a lot to navigate in their quests for long-term profitability,” said Max Rollinger, Director of Mobile Gaming USA. “We’re excited to have Wilson share his insights from years of working with indie mobile developers; he’s certainly the perfect person to keynote our Independent’s Day event.”
Kriegel’s keynote will be a comprehensive guide to surviving and thriving as an indie mobile game developer on a tight budget, from creating valuable partnerships to getting your games in front of the right audiences.
