    If you're an independent game developer, money can be scarce. But publishers love indies right now -- they give us money because, quite often, paying us to make a game costs less than a marketing campaign, and gives them more goodwill. This talk addresses how to get publishers to pay you to make your own game for multiple platforms, who you should target, how much you should ask for, and how to keep multiple streams of revenue coming while you port your games across the landscape.


    Attendees will come away with ideas for how to get one game to fund another, one publisher to fund several platforms, and keep multiple game pipelines humming while still being small.
