Eight Elements To A Successful Game with Carlos Icaza (@CarlosIcaza)
What makes a game successful?
While there is no magic elixir as to what makes a game a success. I have seen a series of elements that most successful games have and in Cookie Monster lingo, here is the Letter E for the key elements to a successful game
- The game must be engaging.
- The game must be entertaining.
- The game must be enjoyable.
- The game must be elastic.
- The game must be expandable.
- You must game must expose the user to other players.
- A game starts in an endemic area.
- A game, once it reaches mass appeal, it becomes an epidemic. It is viral and at this point unstoppable.

When & Where
Nonprofit events to Play, Celebrate & Inspire through experience.
Promoting collaboration inspired by the convergence of art and technology.
We build immersive, engaging, out of the ordinary experiences by:
- Playing together with artists, coders, designers, game developers, creators, performers and musicians.
- Celebrating creativity by building magic-inspiring experiences that combine art with technology.
- Inspiring individuals, entrepreneurs, innovators, startups and companies by injecting creativity into their lives and organizations.
Founded in 2010 and based in San Francisco, California, Bruno Fonzi, inspired by the creative coders, designers, artists he worked with and met at Interactive Conferences around the world, decided to celebrate his passion of Art and Technology back home. CODAME's first ART+TECH Festival was born on a rooftop downtown San Francisco together with Coder/Musician/Artist Jordan Gray aka Starpause.
After 5 years and more than 60 events, 2014 marks CODAME’s most ambitious year to date. Expanding beyond its stronghold in San Francisco, the community is growing to a national level to encompass gaming, design, big data visualization, hackers, music, large-scale installations, fashion and 3D printing as well as internationally-recognized fine artists. CODAME is accelerating the way we interpret and express our rapidly changing world.
