Designing a mobile game for success
Presented by Devin Becker, Design Lead at 5th Planet Games
What you can learn from successful mobile games? How can you apply those keys to your game design? Genre, theme, technology, control schemes, business model, core loop hooks are all key components of game design to consider. In this workshop Devin will present his game design playbook and facilitate an interactive workshop to help you develop your own own ideas. Without proper care devoted to game deisn you can't just think your magic dreams will all work out ;-)
One codebase, multiple platforms
Presented by Joseph Burchett, Build Master at 5th Planet Games
Learn how it's possible to use HTML5/JS to create games using one codebase and distribute to not only mobile but to a lot of the popular platforms currently available. He will run down all the different tools and resources you can use to get started and point out any road blocks you may encounter during development.
Breakout Workshop: Create a Simple Game with Project Anarchy
In this workshop, we will dive deeper into the Project Anarchy toolset and see how to create a simple game. We will cover various aspects of vForge in detail and how to use LUA for prototyping. Please come prepared with your laptop and go to www.projectanarchy.com/download to get the download manager and install the standard SDK along with the content tools.
So You've Made a Mobile Game: now what?
Presented by Brian Collins, Appency
Making a game for mobile is hard enough, but how do you market a game where discoverability is nil and the competition ranks in the hundreds of thousands? This talk will help. We'll go over the history of the app ecosystem, how pricing and business models have changed and talk about the best practices for marketing now. We'll laugh (Oh Candy Crush, you!), we'll cry (the end of Walking Dead, anyone?) and we'll talk about some of the best games on mobile and what we can learn from them.

Presented by Thomas Amsler, Leader of the Google Developer Group
