|Overview:||Few video game genres are more "admired from afar" than fighting gamesbut many fighting games are burdened on increasingly complex mechanics designed to appeal to veterans of the genre, at the expense of appealing to newer players. Drawing upon first-hand experiences from the development of Skullgirls Mobile, this talk takes an in-depth look into the past, present, and future state of "accessible" fighting games that are helping to introduce a new generation of fans to a genre normally reserved for more hardcore audiences. In addition, it examines how those techniques can be applied to other genres that are notoriously more challenging to adapt.|
