What Indie Developers Can Learn From Star Wars: The Last Jedi

By Josh Fairhurst

“The greatest teacher, failure is.”

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a movie about failure. As an indie developer, you will come to know failure intimately. We can learn a lot from the lessons The Last Jedi has to teach us. In this talk you’ll learn that sometimes you need to let the past die and that ultimately, hope is born from failure. Josh Fairhurst uses his personal experiences in game development to illustrate the lessons from the movie. From the ashes of a failed game, Mighty Rabbit Studios continued to survive, spawning in the process one of the industry’s most surprising comebacks in the form of Limited Run Games.
