Come celebrate the end of winter (fingers crossed) and the beginning of the rainy season! Hey, it is better than snow. Our speaker this month is Jenna Hoffstein who will debunk common assumptions that new indie game developers often make, and discuss how the realities of the industry can be quite different. Topics will range from design, business, marketing and self-promotion. A discussion not to be missed!
WIG Boston is hosted by MeYouHealth, located at 27-43 Wormwood Street, 6th floor, Boston, MA 02210. There is a parking lot across the street from the MeYouHealth building, and the South Station MBTA stop is a 10 minute walk away.
