Indie Games Positioning Workshop with Chris Wright, Chief Surprise Architect @ Surprise Attack

Surprise Attack was founded by Chris Wright, a veteran of video games marketing with more than 100 campaigns executed under his care for publishers including THQ, Microsoft, Sega, Capcom, Disney Interactive Studios and many more.

Chris will take you through his highly sought-after two hour interactive workshop on how to "position" your game. Using a variety of unique exercises, this Surprise Architect will get you thinking about your games' hooks and themes, and how to emphasise these unique features within the global game market. Prepare to be delighted and astounded as you learn things about your game that you never knew (or perhaps were too humble to admit!), and how this information can boost your marketing efforts.

Approaching the Press by Tim Colwill, Editor-in-Chief @ games.on.net

Tim is the worldʼs first, last, and only classically-trained combat raconteur. He was raised at an early age by bears, then later by humans, and then later again by humans dressed in unconvincing homemade bear suits.

It is this unique combination of completely untrue things which has made him into the man he is today: dehydrated, frequently confused, and editor-in-chief of games.on.net, Internode's gaming portal.

What does it take to catch an editor's eye? How can you make your press release stand out from the other 6,000 that cross their desk every day? As editor-in-chief of the thriving game community games.on.net, Tim will give you first hand insight into what you can do to make your press materials attractive to even the most time-deficient editor.
