In this 2018 GDC talk, Snowman's Eli Cymet discusses the creation of merchandise for mobile hit Alto's Adventure, including integration of physical goods right into the game itself.
Cymet served up an engaging look at the ins and outs of merchandising across platforms like Etsy and Limited Run Games, with lots of examples fellow devs might learn from and apply to their own merchandising adventures.
It was a great talk about a rarely-discussed facet of game marketing, so if you didn't catch it live make sure to watch Cymet's talk now that it's available to watch for free via the official GDC YouTube channel!
