Video games are not just about the game-play. The world in which the game exists, the characters and the story are all essential in building a successful game and maximizing fan engagement. This panel will discuss the importance of world and community building as well as leveraging IP to create a strong and loyal gaming audience.
Virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality offer new opportunities for creators to push the boundaries of what is possible in terms of storytelling and experiences. These new technologies also come with a unique set of opportunities for creators, as well as their own set of challenges. In this panel, we will explore the challenges and potential of VR/AR/WebXR for creators, and how these technologies can be used to create new and innovative experiences.
The next generation of talent looks vastly different than what most are accustomed to. This panel will provide an introductory discussion regarding the nuances of streamers, content creators, and esports players. We’ll dive into the differences of each talent group, discuss the various ways they generate revenue, and share some of the pain points our panelists have seen talent in this industry face. Attendees can expect to walk away from the discussion with a greater overall understanding of this industry, while also learning of ways traditional entertainment clients have already immersed themselves into this quickly evolving space.
Music in an essential competent to the gaming experience. However, navigating copyright and royalties in video games is a complex process. This panel will discuss the ins and outs of music copyright and royalties in video games, offer expert guidance from top attorneys in entertainment and highlight the do’s and don’ts for artists entering the gaming space.
Over ⅓ of the world’s population plays video games currently (over 3 billion people), and it’s still growing. While over half of all blockchain transactions come from gaming currently, blockchain games still only account for a small fraction of the gaming industry. We’re still early, but the blockchain gaming boom is on a collision course with mainstream pop culture. In this panel, we’ll interview Aggroed Lighthacker, CEO of Splinterlands to discuss the present and the future of the space, and what he feels the core principles of success are for going mainstream after launching the most successful blockchain game currently on the market… over 4 years ago.
Music and Web3 gaming are becoming two mediums that go hand in hand. The Sandbox recently partnered with Warner Music Group to develop immersive music experiences allowing artists and their fans to engage like never before. This panel will explore the opportunities for artists who are trying to get involved in the gaming world and ways that they are creating interactive experiences in the metaverse. We‘ll discuss the challenges and successes of creating these virtual spaces, and how they can be used to enhance both the music and game that’s involved.
