I’m going to at this Idea Exchange: Emerging Trends in Game Development virtual event in about an hour.
When: Friday, April 10th, 12:00PM PDT
Where: http://beta.metaplace.com/Interval/ or http://slurl.com/secondlife/Idea%20City/145/129/37
Topic: Emerging trends in game development.
This event will be an informal group discussion loosely led by Raph Koster, Adri Haik, and myself. We will present some trend that was discussed at GDC, discuss our experience with the trend, how we see it playing out, how it impacts our work, etc, and we will take whatever opportunities we can to engage the audience and encourage group participation in the discussion.
Possible trends to discuss:
- Social game development
- Free-to-play MMOs
- Engagement and retention
This event will be held simultaneously in Metaplace and Second Life. I will be in both virtual worlds simultaneously, but chatting (via text) through Second Life. Raph will be chatting from Metaplace. Adri will be chatting from Second Life. Attendees will participate from both virtual worlds and will include both people working within the virtual world/gaming industries and consumers interested in emerging trends in game development. You are welcome to invite anyone you like.
