Three weeks remain until Pocket Gamer Connects Digital #5, which takes place between February 8th and 12th.
Pocket Gamer Connects Digital will continue our string of successful digital events. Yet again, we will provide excellent panels, interesting talks, and fringe events, and we have improved upon the meeting system since our last go around.
We have 14 insightful tracks for attendees to take in – subjects include growth, esports, live ops, global trends, Blockchain and big screen gaming.
Every day we will look at each of the 14 tracks in turn. Today is Game Maker Insights – case studies from the front line, covering the likes of game design, audio, character design, UX, and narrative.
The Game Maker Insights track is sponsored by CrazyLabs.
