How to survive as a studio manager while working with a publisher
A talk about what it is like to manage a small team of creative developers, while also working closely with a large publisher. It will be a retrospective, of sorts, and a talk more focused on the social interactions and business challenges in a project, and mainly from a manager’s perspective. It will go through the full history of the title Little Big Workshop, all the way from early concept to delivery and post-release support. The presentation should be an eye-opening peek behind the scenes, and it will contain some of the amusing, the great, and the downright stupid things that can happen along the way.
Simon is a self-proclaimed supernerd when it comes to videogames, and one of the original founders of Mirage Game Studios in Karlstad. He is a former teacher, an artist, and he has he has been playing and designing games for as long as he can remember.

👉 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.
