Social Game Design 2011: A Year in Review (SOGS Design)

A session at GDC Game Developers Conference 2012

  • Steve Meretzky

Monday 5th March, 2012

10:00am to 11:00am (PST)

Two of the grizzliest veterans of social gaming, Dave Rohrl (creative director at Playdom) and Steve Meretzky (VP of game design at Playdom) present their entertaining and informative annual review of the field. What are the latest trends, the most interesting games, the most notable new viral and monetization techniques and the developments to watch for during the coming year? Come and get updated on one of the hottest sectors in games today.

TAKEAWAY: In the fastest-changing world of social gaming, a lot of the conventional wisdom about the sector is actually wrong. Steve and Dave will separate the myths from the truth, explain what is working and not working in the social game arena today, and what might change in the months to come.
