Social Games and Social Applications on platforms like Facebook are drawing developers and artists in like never before. There's good reason. Like mobile games devlopers don't necessarily need enormous budgets and backing. Small teams can and do make innovative and popular games and applications.

A Social Game Fest is an event where people create Social Games and Social Applications for platforms such as Facebook.

The game or application making process is usually set up for four sessions.

If you have not made a social game or application previously with a platform like facebook it is recommended you attend all four sessions. For most people this is recommended as subjects ranging from the Facebook API in game design, PHP, database use, graphic format & conversion, to monetization will be touched on in session 1 & 2.

For those who would not benefit from additional background or time and are ready to find or bring a team and build a game or application immediately, it is recommended to attend sessions 3 & 4 only.

An application server and an onsite system administrator are provided during the course of the event

All sessions are open to the general public

Social Game Fests are game making festivals held over a series of a few weeks where participants can range from professional developers to students who share the desire to set aside some time to make a social game and connect with other talented creative people.

    Get some thoughts on how to monetize or market your Game or app

    Get the basics on the technology of how to build a social application

    Meet some people with complementary talents to form a game team

    Spend a cheaper, more creative evening than going out to most restaurants

    Set aside a disciplined time to excecute your experienced pre-existing team's idea

    Submit a game for awards

    Hang with fellow game geeks and artists

How do the Social Game Fest sessions work?

Usually there are four sessions available to attend over a period of four weeks. The first two are offered for those who wish to gain technical background for making social games. The last two sessions are oriented towards actively making a game with a team of one or more people. FAQ's and registration info here.

What exactly are social games anyway? Here's one pretty decent explanation.
