Indie developers have been hit particularly hard by the travel restrictions caused by the global pandemic. Small studios and lone game creators rely on conferences, workshops and events in order to promote their projects, learn new skills, and make valuable industry connections. So far in 2020, it's been very hard to do that.
That's why we've made it easy and affordable to attend our own networking events. We're running a Big Indie Pitch online today; free live RoundTable videos multiple times a month; and there are complimentary tickets available to qualifying indies for Pocket Gamer Connects Digital conferences.
Now we're pleased to announce that Pocket Gamer Connects Digital #2 will also feature a virtual Mentor Café for indies, courtesy of our pals at IGDA Finland.
Free advice and insight
Joining the amazing content on offer at PGC Digital #2 on Thursday, 11 June, IDGA Finland will be running their acclaimed IGDA Mentor Café for registered attendees.
