Discord, a free communication program for gamers, has become one of the most important places for developers to connect with their superfans. Recently, Discord has evolved to include game commerce, alpha/beta testing, and promotional tools. Join developers Mike Rose (No More Robots), Rami Ismail (Vlambeer), Jónas Antonsson (Raw Fury), and Andrew Nguyen (Brace Yourself Games) along with Discord CMO Eros Remini and learn how they've used Discord's tools at every stage of development to harness the power of community and improve their games, sell more units, and extend their long tail.


Attendees will learn community building best practices from industry veterans, how they integrated Discord into their dev strategy, and how to use Discord's new community and commerce tools.

Intended Audience

Game developers at any stage of development who are interested in building or strengthening their community, engaging their superfans, and activating their players.
