GameDevCafe – Work for Hire

1 February, 2023 @ 18:00 - 23:00 CET


How do you acquire new projects, funding and players in and out of the video game industry? Ellis Bartholomeus and Michiel Sala have learned the ropes in the last two decennia. They will discuss the ups and downs of working with clients, stakeholders and end-users. Or in Michiel’s words: developing stuff for 100 euros an hour is the worst way to build a sustainable business.

Why do money-makers develop nothing, and why don’t developers make money? That’s the discussion for tonight. 

GameDevCafĂ© is a monthly gathering of game professionals in Utrecht. Share, care and play (each others’) games in an informal friendly setting.
