Chris Wright is a 17 year veteran of the games industry and the founder and Managing Director of three companies: indie games label, Fellow Traveller, games marketing agency, Double Jump Communications, and indie games investment vehicle The Treasure Hunters Fanclub.
After a decade working in the AAA games industry including senior marketing roles at THQ, Chris found himself out of a job in 2011 when THQ closed their Australian studios Bluetongue and THQ Studio Aus. Rather than get another job, Chris decided to go indie and set out to build his own publisher from scratch. Honestly, how hard could it be, right?
Join Chris, and our host Jason Imms as they take a trip down memory lane and chat through the inception and growth of Surprise Attack and its sub-brands, what running an indie publishing label looks like, and the challenges and pressures of running your own business in the games industry.
