    Hatch Entertainment Director Go-to-Market & Commercial Partnerships Gunjan Garg delivers a Game Changers: Cloud & Connected Experiences session at Pocket Gamer Connects London 2019 on January 21st to 22nd.

    Who are family gamers, and how is our industry catering to them? We know that family gamers – those living in households where kids and adults play together – are some of the most knowledgeable and heavily engaged consumers in the industry. They are also among the most likely to spend money on gaming subscriptions.

    But in today’s gaming landscape, families are often left out in the cold, especially on mobile which focuses on monetising in ways that are not always friendly to kids. How can cloud gaming services like Hatch rise to address this growing gap in the marketplace, and bring families together in a fun, safe and sustainable way?

    The Game Changers: Cloud & Connected Experiences track was sponsored by Hatch.
