Overview: There are many game design topics that don't require an hour to discuss, but are specifically quite useful in mobile game design. The MGDN is a new talk format at the Smartphone Game Design Summit; part microtalk, part design review. In this year's talk, there will be a discussion on the evolution of mobile fighting games, the role of the judge and the judged in character design for interactive storytelling, and a review examples of good and bad control design in mobile action games, among other topics.
