Tekes Skene Game Business Event; Keep creative in current Game Industry Business environment
What is going on in the game industry? For couple of years we have been filled with issues of free-to-play, monetizing, user acquisition, add networks and thousands of service providers. However, initially games are results of creative process and that is as important as business. For that reason Tekes Skene Business event focuses mainly to creative point of view to this time. Another relevant topic covered is new Free-To-Play games regulation by EU and its consequences to developers and game development.
