Event Details

Mark Heggen will be previewing topics covered in his full-day workshop on Game Design. The Game Design workshop covers the entire process of crafting an original and compelling game from initial ideation all the way through post-launch management, and is appropriate for designers of all skill and experience levels. Mark will preview the topics to be covered in the workshop, and then give an in-depth preview of the "Assorted Secrets" portion of the workshop where he will share some of the design tips and tricks he's picked up over his many years in the game industry. He will also be able to answer any questions about whether or not his workshop is right for you.

Full-Day Workshop: Game Design
Saturday, September 20th (10am-5pm)

Mark Heggen is a professional game designer who has been pushing the boundaries of experimental game design for almost a decade. As an early member of Area/Code Games, Mark helped design games such as early Facebook hit Parking Wars and cult classic Drop7, as well as education and social intervention projects like Macon Money and Budgetball. After the studio’s acquisition by Zynga, he worked on games with millions of daily players. He helped establish the New York office of real-world gameplay pioneers Hide&Seek, and is now Director of Entertainment Applications for the AMC television network. Mark has designed card games, new sports, massively multiplayer games, alternate reality games, mobile titles, and a game you play with actual sharks. He has also taught game design at NYU, the New York Film Academy, and the University of Detroit.
