Guest Speaker, Ben Hoyt: How to Start Your Own Game Studio


Hear Ben Hoyt, Founder and CEO, 47 Games, Inc. discuss starting your own studio.

Benjamin Hoyt has more than 12 years of experience designing and producing entertainment software.  During that time he has shipped games on most of the major platforms including console, PC, and mobile.  Shipped titles include Star Trek: D-A-C, Def Jam: Icon, The Witcher2 , Duel Masters, and more, for companies such as Paramount Pictures, Electronic Arts, Atari, and High Voltage Software.

He began creating mobile games in 2008, shortly after the launch of the iPhone, and in recent years his focus has been on digitally distributed games and social/mobile apps.  Shipped mobile titles include Centipede: Origins, Saturday Night Fever, Days of Thunder, Circus Atari, and School of Rock.  In 2012 he founded 47 Games, whose first title, Phrazzle, will launch later this summer in partnership with GameFly and Idol Minds Entertainment.

For more information about him, see
