David Chang, CMO, Gamblit Gaming

David Chang, CMO of Gamblit Gaming, got his start in the games industry at IGN, where he envisioned new business ideas and partnerships for the company. He describes his position as a dream job with plenty of opportunity to use his creativity in a business context within an industry. For Chang, the most enjoyable part of the industry is the ability to create new entertainment experiences. Since the video games industry is still relatively new compared to other entertainment media, there is still opportunity for pioneering. He feels fortunate to have been able to make a living in this industry, knowing the creativity and the pace suit him well.

The time when Chang felt the proudest in his career came when he founded OnNet Europe GmbH. He considers it a great honor for a Korean based company to have had enough faith in him and his abilities to provide the funding and backing for the company. Making this company successful and profitable was additionally satisfying.

Following A Feeling

Today at Gamblit Gaming, he is responsible for their market messaging and positioning, partnership discussions, game production and product definition. When a friend introduced him to Gamblit, he liked the company so much that he left his own mobile games company to join them. His job at Gamblit uses much of his education and experience. His legal background is helpful in understanding the many regulations in real money gaming. The experience he gained through founding and running online games and his mobile games company allows him to understand what developers and publishers are looking for to be successful.

Something To Look Forward To

Chang believes that in the near future, real money gambling will become a big trend in this industry as more jurisdictions begin permitting online real money gambling. “I think you are going to see a lot of crossover between companies that were traditionally thought of as gambling companies and those that were traditionally thought of as games companies,” Chang predicted.

“I think you are going to see a lot of crossover between companies that were traditionally thought of as gambling companies and those that were traditionally thought of as games companies.”

He also believes the industry will discover a new platform within the next few years. He can’t guess whether it will be wearables, Android mini-consoles, Smart TVs or something else, but he definitely expects hardware to define the next big gaming trend.

Keeping It Simple

For his own gaming, Chang plays a lot of Super Smash Bros, and, most recently, Ni No Kuni. Most often, he is playing on his smartphone, his Xbox 360 or Wii.

“I definitely find plain vanilla Android the best experience for me,” Chang said. “None of that manufacturer or carrier software for me, thank you.”
