Session Name:

Idle Chatter: What We Can Learn From Self-Playing Games


A follow-up to last year's popular talk on idle games, the session will look at how this new game genre has grown, evolved, and expanded over the past year. In addition to browser and mobile games, idle games like AdVenture Capitalist and Clicker Heroes are wildly popular on Steam, Valve created an idle game for its recent Summer Sale, and there is growing interest from Sony and Microsoft to bring them to consoles.
New trends in the genre will be explored and new games will be analyzed, including specific data shared from the Kongregate platform and mobile idle games. Prepare to get bizarrely, inexplicably excited about watching numbers go up!!
