Overview: Zeptolab is a very creative and innovative mobile studio: Each Zeptolab success was not only a very innovative game on its own, but each of the five big successes is in a completely different genre. In this talk, Jorge Rosado, Lead Game Designer, will share how Zeptolabs' creative culture and process works and evolves, using as a test case their most recent success, Overcrowded: Tycoon.
