  • Valve allowed to participate in the festival to everyone, but also manually selected a number of games — They seemed to the company most curious and promising. This wears have special attention from Steam: For example, they got into a separate section on the event page and got a slot in the broadcast, which was twisted during the festival.
    • Games with direct support from Valve did not always receive the most interest from users. Zukovsky considers it proof of the unreliability of manual selection: no one can predict what kind of games the market will be achieved.

Output U Zukovsky Next: The online festival with demoments turned out to be much more efficient to traditional offline events, where developers should come up with and build a stand, as well as plan and pay a trip to another edge of light. Like, in the network format, the authors remain a lot of power and time that you can spend on the production of the game itself.
