Although the Playing Narratives program is aimed at young creatives entering the video game industry, as they will work on their own, collaborative game concepts, they need to have insights into market trends, genre specifics, player and user profiles, marketing approaches and many other aspects of the production and exploitation of products such as video games.
Dušan Žica, creative strategist with vast experience in marketing, but also specific projects in the field of indie or mobile video games, and more recently in the blockchain / NFT domain, will share with the participants his insights, but also provide advice for project work in this cycle, as he was the main mentor for the teams during the premiere edition of Playing Narratives in 2021.
This program is intended exclusively for participants in the Playing Narratives program, and is not open to the public. Thank you for your understanding.
