Jay Powell's Blog

 

Jay has worked on the business end of the game industry for over two decades.  First as an agent, now as the CEO of The Powell Group.  Between the two he handled business for a publisher, a developer, and his first production company.

Now, aside from running a successful firm, he's launched "Indie Game Business" on Twitch with co-host Dan "Indie" Long.  After years of frustration that there is no true way to learn the business, marketing, and licensing side of the industry he started the show to try to help fill that void.  Twice a week they discuss news, break down valuable topics like pitching to publishers, and interview developers, marketing experts, and other developers from around the globe.
