    After the surprise success of their student game Octodad, a group of recent college graduates were crazy enough to try to make a commercial sequel. Three years later, Octodad: Dadliest Catch is the first release from independent studio Young Horses and has since grossed enough to fund a seven-person team full-time. Join Phil Tibitoski and John Murphy as they discuss the methods they've used to create a successful [joke] game, work better as a team, and learn to love again.


    Attendees will learn how a young studio can create development processes and studio culture by drawing on old-school industry mentors, indie pals and the team's communal-gut instincts. In addition, attendees will learn how a small team's production methods and studio culture can be informed by each other as they develop.
