In this talk I will report on the lessons learned from working with and studying an independent games developer that faced the fundamental choice of self-publishing its content vs. contracting a publisher for marketing and promotion activities. We here voices from the indie community that the publisher is dead, but is this really the case? I will shed light on this issue by reporting on my insights. Questions answered : - What are the costs of partnering with a publisher? - What are the benefits of partnering with a publisher? - Which marketing activities have significant impact on sales performance? - When should you team up with a publisher and when not?
