The Power of Perception: Managing Expectations of Your Game's Reception
So you want to hype up your game and sells pre-orders like crazy? You'll likely need some influencers, streamers, YouTubers, or games media to help spread the word, but what can and should you showcase that generates excitement without being misleading? What kind of access is not enough or too much? Andrea Rene has been working in games media for a decade with brands like IGN, GameTrailers, GameStop TV, and more. She'll lead a discussion on managing gamers' expectations through pre-launch coverage, and how to work with press and influencers to put your best foot forward.
Game Awards Watch-a-long Thursday evening. Any and Tim. 6 pm PT.
