Five Things Investors Get Wrong About Games Startups

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This will be a talk about common mistakes and misconceptions that startup investors hold about games startups and reasons to invest in them. For example, the"shots on goal" fallacy, or the idea that many investors hold wherein because they believe games are content, that the best strategy for success is to develop many small ones and hope one hits. This, in the age of service-driven games and online communities, is manifestly not true and yet investors still hold onto that belief.
