With Early-bird Registration for Nicholas’ pre-GDC Business Masterclass closing in 24 hours time, we’re almost sold out of Sunday tickets – only three remain at the deeply discounted price of $400. After those three are sold, you’ll still be able to register for the Sunday event at the full price, or join the push to get another Masterclass to run on the previous Friday.

These Masterclasses are a rare opportunity for developers and publishers from across the globe to attend one of Nicholas’ events, which have run dozens of times for hundreds of participants in Europe. The full-day Masterclass is more than just a lectures – it’s a chance to get hands-on, practical experience of implementing the principles behind successful free-to-play and paymium businesses, to work alongside your industry peers and colleagues and to come away with a true in-depth understanding of how to build a successful business from your games.

Nicholas Lovell’s one-day workshop was comprehensive, insightful, creative and entertaining, but more than that it was inspirational. Nobody understands how games can be monetised like him, and nobody explains it better.

If you’re in the business of making money from games, we think a GAMESbrief Masterclass is one of the best investments you can make. Check out Zoya’s earlier post for a detailed look at the topics we cover), or check out the blue boxes throughout this post to read some of the feedback we’ve had from attendees at previous Masterclasses in Europe.

Really enjoyed the masterclass yesterday. It was full of interesting ideas and techniques, and I think I got as much from the feedback you provided to others as I did from the lectures.

So if you’re thinking of attending and want to make sure you get the best price, be sure to register soon. We’re running on a “crowdfunding” basis, so the events only run if there’s sufficient interest – but we’re down to the last few discounted tickets for Sunday already, and we expect the Friday event to fill up quickly once Sunday’s has been confirmed. There are plenty of full-price tickets still available, but the window of opportunity to save $200 on your booking is closing fast.

Incredible masterclass with Nicholas Lovell today… If you have the opportunity to attend any, do so!

A good sign that you have enjoyed a workshop is how fast the day goes… 5 o’clock came around very quickly!!

Belinda Peach, Peachy

The information was extremely useful, the delivery was infectiously enthusiastic and extremely sharp.

Kevin Doolan, Ideal Binary

I really enjoyed yesterday. You hit everything I’m reading/discussing and thinking about at the moment, and it excites and fascinates me what can be achieved with these simple mechanics.
