The trio discusses how the Game Developers Conference has evolved over the years, as well as the changing role of consumer and industry events - particularly for indies. They also ponder the biggest challenges that independent developers face today, including the ever-looming obstacle of discoverability, and the rise of indie publishers.

Dan is joined by Jason Della Rocca, co-founder of early stage investor Execution Labs and all-round indie champion. Together, they discuss the art of the pitch, how devs can identify new opportunities and gaps in the market, and the difficulties indies and start-ups face in standing out from the crowd in everything from mobile to virtual reality.
