Join us March 22 at 6pm for the “Keys to Viral Game Success”
Whether you a web, mobile or console game designer or developer you know that going viral is a critical key to success. Virality is a puzzle you must continually solve and plan for. No games seem to be solving this puzzle more succesfully than some of the social games which don’t even have state of the art graphics or gameplay. Join us to hear Mark Skaggs, the lead man behind the largest game on Facebook Farmville whose previous work also included such hits as Red Alert II with EA, and Sana Choudary, Chief social strategy consultant at Traffichoney, a company that consults with and creates social games for the largest traditional game companies as they discuss keys to virality and how those apply to both social and other games.
We plan to finish with an interactive Q&A so designers and developers can get a chance to get some brief direct opinions or strategies on some of their own game & app virality issues.
