Session Name Game Design in a Mine Field: Creating Strategy Browser Games
Speaker(s) Eike Klindworth
Company Name(s) InnoGames GmbH
Track / Format Design

Browser games offer great possibilities including huge game worlds with 30,000 or more players on the same world. However, this leads to game design challenges since not all users start at the same time and veteran players automatically have an advantage compared to newbies - especially when dealing with highly competitive strategy games.
Eike Klindworth, founder of the German online games company InnoGames and creative head responsible for successful strategy titles like Tribal Wars (39 million registered users) and Grepolis (8 million registered users) will show the best way to achieve balanced, motivating game design in strategy games.
