|Session Name:||5 Keys to Making Mobile Games Inherently Social|
|Speaker(s):||David B. Bluhm|
|Track / Format:||Social/Online Games|
|Overview:||Mobile phones were made to be social, but few developers are implementing truly social and scalable game mechanics into mobile games. Many developers believe that incorporating Apple's Game Center or hooking into a social platform somehow makes their game social. However, real social mobile engagement and activity goes far beyond providing leaderboards, community level achievements or Facebook integration. This presentation will discuss 5 key components mobile developers need to understand to create truly social mobile games and will discuss the development hurdles that need to be overcome to build successful social mobile games.|
