Lottie Bevan, Producer/Co director, The Weather Factory
Indie studios are fragile and the road is perilous. Diversifying revenue streams is a good way to keep your studio safer, so Weather Factory opened a physical merchandise shop based around its Cultist Simulator IP. In this talk, Lottie will go over Weather Factory’s merch experience, how to set up your own merch store, Weather Factory’s numbers, the hideous pitfalls she’s run into in the Church of Merch’s first 8 months of life, and what else you can do as an indie studio with... merchspertise?
