With a game market worth over 288 billion yuan (2019, statista.com) and a more and more connected population, a huge opportunity for western game developers present itself.
But what is popular with the Chinese market? Who are they and what do they play?
In this Friday Stories Weihua tell us more about the who the Chinese players are, what they usually play and good things to think about when developing your game for the market.
👉 What’s in it for me? Get inspired by interesting talks from industry people. Network and meet both local and national game devs and others from the games and experience industry. 👉 What is it? A unique talk + jam session series. Every Friday during the spring you’re welcome to join and get insights from industry thought leaders, people with ideas and experience from working with them. Participants take what they’ve learned and create a game concept or prototype. 👉 Why? Our goal is to inspire students and game developers to make games by introducing them to industry professionals. A knowledge and skills transfer where game industry professionals host workshops on both narrative and inclusive game design. This is a collaboration between The Great Journey and Futuregames together with the industry to bring lectures and workshops around meaningful topics like diversity and inclusive game design.
The Great Journey and our events are made possible with the support of the European Regional Development Fund, Region Värmland, Karlstad Innovation Park and Embracer Group.
