Channel 4 is the latest firm to sign up for our upcoming Interface event, giving devs the chance to secure a publishing deal with the broadcaster's new games arm.
Interface will take place at St Mary's Church, Marylebone, London on Thursday, May 5th. The event centres around a private one-to-one meeting system that gives developers the chance to pitch their titles to publishers actively looking for games to bring to market.
Channel 4 launched All 4 Games, a new publishing arm, late last year. Currently focusing on mobile titles, the company is looking for independent developers with titles that resonate with the broadcaster's various audiences. It is also open to the possibility of collaborating on licensed titles based on Channel 4 IP, such as Hollyoaks, Come Dine With Me, The Inbetweeners and so on.
The firm joins a number of publishing houses already signed up, alongside Plug In Digital and KISS. You can find out more and sign up here.
There will also be informative speaker sessions as well as panel discussions and keynote presentations focusing on the key issues facing the games development industry. Speakers already confirmed include indie pioneers Mike Bithell and The Chinese Room’s Dan Pinchbeck, Team17 MD Debbie Bestwick, as well as Revolution, Playtonic and Edge Case Games on The £6m Panel, and a quartet of PR experts.
On the day, attendees curate their own experience – typically a day will be a mixture of taking in conference sessions and keynote talks, pre-arranged one-to-one pitching meetings (arranged by us) and ad hoc meetings/product demonstrations at the exhibition. The entire day is designed to bring all aspects of the videos games industry together through an array of methods.
