Apple Arcade: The next big hit for mobile developers?

In fall 2019 Apple launched Apple Arcade, a new subscription service, that differs widely from the established rules of mobile gaming – the games work offline and contain no ads or microtransactions. Sounds great for players, but is it also a sustainable business model for developers?


100 million new players by 2030: Games in onboard entertainment

Onboard entertainment is well established on (long-distance) flights – and will become an important feature of electric cars in the foreseeable future. Tesla already has a number of games implemented, while plenty of other car manufacturers are working on similar solutions for their onboard entertainment. This panel is dedicated to this exciting new market segment.

How do I earn money with my games?

You have plenty of choices to make when developing a game in 2020: Should it be a physical retail release? Sold via Steam? Or on GOG without DRM? What about the Epic Games Store? And will a console port be worth it? Or does it have to be on iOS and Android? Our experts talk about how and where to actually make money with a game.

Building a company people love to work at

"There's free coffee and water" - great! What might have been enough a few years ago to get employees excited about his company, no longer draws them out of their shell. Especially fast-growing companies must not lose sight of the needs of their team. Of course, companies must be modern, efficient and successful. But they must also adapt to social developments and their employees. With flexible working models, transparency, respect, and perspectives. What does the workplace of the future look like and what are companies already doing to attract - and retain - their employees? Lenka Kaciakova (Vice President HR at Wooga) and Arno Heinisch (Managing Director of Rocket Beans) talk about these exciting questions for the most popular employers of the future.

How influencers want to play

An important aspect of the coverage and ultimately the sales figures of a game is the appeal it has for big influencers. Let's Plays and other features on the channels of high reach influencers are ideally worth cash money. But what must a game offer to stand out from the crowd? How important are twitch integrations and similar options? Mikkel Robrahn, COO at PietSmiet and influencer fisHC0p report.
