Mike is founder of publishing label No More Robots. An ex-game critic turned publishing expert, he has helped numerous devs selling hundreds of thousands of games. Previously he discovered and published games at tinyBuild, and prior to that he wrote about video games at Gamasutra, Kotaku, PocketGamer and more. The rumours that he is incredibly loud are mostly true.
With so many games releasing across every possible platform, the vast majority of titles are now sent out to their immediate deaths. Only the top 0.1% of games now make any real money -- so what can you do to grasp for one of those top slots? In this talk, Mike Rose from publishing label No More Robots explains what you can do to raise your chances of success in this scary market.

I’ve been to every single Develop in the last 12 years. One thing you get here is networking - you will meet the most amazing individuals in the video games industry.
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.

Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.

Develop:Brighton’s a great conference. It’s got a spread of people from all parts of the games industry talking about such a wide range of topics.
Building games is hard and it’s taxing physically, mentally and emotionally. So being around a community that understands that is great – there’s a comraderie here.
Develop is a very important place – it’s one of the few developer focussed conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
I really like Develop, I really like the intimacy of it and I love the location.. there’s a good diversity of talks going on so there hasn’t been a time when there’s nothing I want to see.
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
There really is a huge mix of people at Develop - loads of peers that you can learn from and the perfect blend of every element of game development as well.
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton 2018 - including speaking in the conference, taking a booth in the Expo or becoming a sponsor.Find out more
