Autumn UK GIAF 2016 featured:
Control Model – Crafting an economic system where business meet fun
This talk covered the best practices in crafting a free-to-play economic system – The Control Model. Keeping your economic indicators in certain margins increases the chances of your game having good Retention and optimized monetization. Evtim digged into high level economic and monetization analytics tips to help keep your economy healthy and the Control Model working as intended.
At the border of design and data – Crossing balancing game data with player data
Free-to-play games have seen a growing part of their design focused on economic balancing. In this talk, Thibault showcased how in-game data can be associated with user data, to improve the quality of the game experience and the monetization of a game through concrete data examples.
Making the non-traditional mainstream – Recognising the value of female gamers
Long gone are the days when gaming was considered a male bastion. App stores constantly face the clash of clones with similar game genres chasing the male audience. Is it possible to design games for female audiences and make the word “gamer” commonplace in a woman’s lexicon?
We’re always on the look out for interesting speakers to take part in either our San Francisco or London GIAFs.
