Casual Connect Europe presentations online
Quick note: the presentations from Casual Connect Europe are now online among all of the great Casual Games Assocation presentations and articles. My personal favourites from the show include:
- Community & Social Gaming: Is there any meaning behind the buzzwords? This was a great, interactive session lead by David Nixon. The best stuff is in the audio recording, as the whole point of the session was to get the audience to participate.
- Game Technology. 3D, Flash and Licensed Engines This session provided a good introduction to 3D on Flash. If you are new to the topic, this is a good starting point.
- Stats Amazing! – How metrics can help you to sharpen your creative sword A good intro on Flash game metrics
- “PSN rock crushing and casual golfing on XBLA” – Developing downloadable games for console platforms a fellow Finnish game developer, Ilari Kuittinen, CEO of Housemarque, that has a great track record on pioneering digital downloadable console games. Hard facts, good insights.
I had a great time in Hamburg, and Casual Connect Europe 2010 will definitely be on my calendar.
P.S. I will be speaking at Nordic Game held in Malmö from 19th to 20th of May. I will be reprising my “How to start a game business” presentation with more lessons learned since.
