Inside Indie Games

How to use Events & Awards to Make a Success of your Game, with Mark Backler


In this episode we’re talking to Mark Backler, founder of Fourth State and Sketchbook Games. Right now he’s focused on Lost Words, a narrative-based game set inside a diary.

Lost Words is available to add to your wishlist on Steam now here.

Mark’s background is in really big games development companies, such as Lionhead Studios and Electronic Arts, but just a few years back he jumped out of that world to start his own company.

Mark offers a tonne of advice; from how to build your team, to getting the most value possible from industry events and the awards they often run.
