Video: Growing your community the DayTV way
Speaking at GDC 2014, professional eSports broadcaster Sean "Day" Plott gave an excellent business-minded talk guiding developers through ways to stay connected and relevant to their audience.
Developers, how do you make your game stand out and thrive in a crowded market? As more and more games are free-to-play or released to the public in alpha status, it's more important than ever for game makers to nurture long-lasting communities around their work so they can continue to thrive long after release. Professional eSports broadcaster Sean "Day" Plott has managed to build a thriving audience for his work over the last five years, and at GDC 2014 he gave an excellent business-minded talk guiding developers through the principles he uses to stay connected and relevant to his audience. By showing how those principles were applied during key points in DayTV history, Plott provides concrete examples that developers can adapt and apply to their own communities. The free video (embedded above) of 'Keeping a Community for Five Years: The Story of DayTV' is now available to watch here on the GDC Vault.
