Secrets of Successful Casual Game Design

  • Westwood College - Denver North Campus

    7350 Broadway, Denver, CO (map)

    39.830185 -104.985970

  • Room 232, or follow the CiGDA signs if they're up.
  • The casual games market is crowded, competitive, and yet endlessly popular. While a huge number of casual games fail to break out of obscurity, many of them find moderate to incredible success, while still being relatively easy to develop.

    Although there are no guarantees of what will make a game successful, this talk will share some of the lessons and tricks learned over the course of working on 2 top-grossing casual games (and some lessons from a beautiful failure as well).

    If you are currently working on a casual game, or plan to in the future, this talk will cover proven game design strategies for:

    • Increasing player engagement

    • Making your game viral

    • Getting players to invest time and / or money into playing your game.

    • Appealing to casual, mid-core, male and female players.

    Sorry guys, we've got to cancel this - Daniel's had a family medical emergency, and will be otherwise engaged this Thursday.

    We'll reschedule it for a few months from now, once he's back and can figure out when will work for him.

    Daniel - I'd love to see this one but I definitely can't make it up to Denver that night. Could I convince you to do a Hangouts for this one?

      Hi Eric - haven't seen a Hangouts format for a meetup before. How would it work?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
