Panel Schedule

Sekai Project: 10 Years in the Gaming Industry

Friday, July 28th, 4:00 PM in Panel Room 5 (Hotel, 2nd Floor)

Join Sekai Project as we celebrate 10 years of publishing visual novels in the West. From CLANNAD, NEKOPARA, the 9-nine- series and many other titles, we’ve been involved with the publishing of some of the most well-known visual novels in the West. There will be discussions on our current plans as well as announcements on upcoming titles. We’ll also have a brief Q&A session and perhaps some giveaways too!


Visual Novels, Game Development, and Game Publishing

Saturday, July 29th, 3:00 PM in Panel Room 2 (Convention Center, 1st Floor)

Are you a game developer? Perhaps someone interested in developing visual novels and even have a game pitch? Stop by this panel hosted by Sekai Project CEO Chris Ling who will go over things to be mindful as well as pitfalls to avoid when pitching to a publisher. Even if you aren’t a developer, there’s plenty to learn about the process of developing your own game as well as gain insight on what a publisher may look for.


Kickstarter, and other ways to SELL your design

Sunday, July 30th, 4:00 PM in Panel Room 4 (Hotel, 2nd Floor)

This is a joint panel hosted by SJ Games founder and game designer, Steve Jackson. The panel will be a discussion on how to sell your design and product on Kickstarter and through other avenues.
