Speaker(s): Steve Meretzky, Dave Rohrl
Company Name(s): Playdom, FunSockets
Track / Format: Design
Overview: This recap of the social gaming world has been a fixture of GDC Online for four years, and is always one of the most popular sessions. With their exhaustive knowledge and up-to-the-minute analysis of social games, Dave and Steve distill a year of turbulent progress into a single cogent hour. They dive into the most interesting or significant games of the past year, the lessons those games teach us, and the trends they portend. Whether you are unfamiliar with social gaming and want to quickly get up to speed on what's happening, or you are deeply immersed in the space and would benefit from the frank viewpoint of two other experts -- or if you are somewhere in between! -- this session has something for you.
