How important is networking for indie game developers?
Very, according to the MD of Prospect Games
Andrew Bennison says a total of around 90 people worked on Prospect Games’ new title 'Unbox: Newbie's Adventure' – and they were all essential.
The game, already available on Steam, was released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One last week and is coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year.
In this interview, Bennison says his biggest tip for indies aiming to make their mark in a saturated market is to get out there and speak to people to fill gaps in their skillsets.
Manchester-based Prospect focused on marketing and getting 'Unbox: Newbie's Adventure' – “a love letter to Nineties classics” – into the retail market.
He discusses how to make a game stand out, the other challenges facing indies, the mobile market and the potential of the growing Nintendo Switch user base.
