“Your Game As Community: Learnings from the Intersection of Viewing, Playing and Buying”
Presented by Ethan Evans, SVP of Twitch Commerce and Developer Success
July 11th, 2017, 5:00-6:00pm BST – Room 4
It’s hard enough to make a great game, but how do you find people who love it? And how do you keep them around? Answer: build a community. Great news…your existing players are already creating social connections around their shared interest in your game. Your mission is to nurture those social connections with the same rigor you use to tune your gameplay. Ethan Evans, head of game developer strategy at Twitch, shares data and anecdotes about how Twitch helps build game communities, including protips on working with streamers, early learnings from game sales on Twitch, and the surprising power of Twitch Affiliates.
