I used to print prototypes and ship them all over the globe to my fellow publishers and partners to present them with what we created. I used to go to conventions in Europe and in the US to meet with them and run demos of games. That’s how it used to be. It’s no longer the case.
Today I met with 4 publishers, and I run demos for our partners in Spain, Netherlands, Scandinavia, and Ukraine. None of us left the office. No prototype was shipped. All happened via Table Top Simulator. The game demos went nicely and smoothly. Most likely, I secured the future of my game for a couple of countries.
It’s good to be a publisher and have all these modern tools.
