A Closer Look at the Latin American Game Development Scene - Evolution of the Fittest and Tips for Survival

During the last 5 years Latin America has emerged as one of the fastest growing videogame markets, so there is plenty of interest in how to penetrate this market. On the other side, we have seen better and better games coming from Latin American developers, but few things have been said about the Game Dev scene of this region of the world. Who are they? What are their stories? how they survived in an environment that lacks almost any private sustained investment, and where is (sadly) normal to distrust each other? During this talk we'll go over the most interesting cases of success and failure, most of them from veteran developers (some already defunct) in Latin America. My main focus will be on how they adapted and evolved along the years, how they managed their success and stayed profitable. Aside of sharing these stories, I look forward to discuss about them with the audience.

NOTE: Date may change, as schedule is still work in progress.
