When Crimson Cow Games Company attended the Summits at GDC last March 14-15, 2016, our passion has become stronger and our knowledge has extensively broadened. The extent of learning we have acquired was a treasure. We were able to find value in the following sectors:
The AI Summit has featured lectures and panels from the most sought-after AI programmers in the industry. We were able to learn the key structures of the most successful commercial games, and it was truly epic.
We have gained some insights on how we can further manage the needs and interests of our community and consider these in crafting our company’s goals. The community management strategies delivered were all valuable.
Everything about eSports was discussed. We’ve gained lots of new insights about how to grow, design, develop, communicate, and sustain in the competitive gaming industry.
Free to Play
F2P has certainly revolutionized the industry over the past years. Both mobile and web games
are ruled by F2P games. We’ve got some helpful pieces of insights on how we can take advantage of this.
Game Narrative Summit
In this summit, we’ve learned the value of interactive storytelling. We have gained tips on the dos and don’ts that are relevant in the existing market.
GDC Education Summit
The educational and inventive approaches cited here were all worthy to be brought to every classroom and faculty. No doubt about that.
Independent Games Summit
We have realized how much more the indie game industry has to become more diverse in terms of experience, voice, and perspective
Smartphone & Tablet Games Summit
This is another important part of it all. We were able to gain distinct ideas on what are the most effective practices in developing games across all mobile platforms—be it Android, iOS, Amazon, and more.
The Game Summit at GDC was a momentous event for us. It marked the day of additional valuable knowledge from the best of the gaming industry. Truly worthwhile!
