Last week, it was Casual Connect Europe time again. And as is good tradition, here are my slides:
Last week, I interrupted my vacation on the rather wonderful island of Guernsey to fly over to GDC Europe in Cologne, the precursor to the gaming expo moloch that is Gamescom, where I had the great pleasure to give a little talk about why, distinct to widespread (at least in the game developer community) believe, there is a very natural and very compelling reason to marry mobile and social under the roof of BlackBerry. My slides are rarely wordy, so you may not follow the gist of each one, but I reckon it’ll do…
So here they are:
This week, I had the privilege to attend and speak at the truly fabulous Game Horizon conference in Newcastle (which is rather pretty as you will see in the picture). There was a plethora of inspiring and insightful talent that taught me a lot, including Torsten Reil (CEO, Natural Motion), Ian Livingstone (Life President Eidos and Founder of Games Workshop), David Helgason (CEO Unity), Mark Rein (Co-Founder Epic Games), Oscar Clark (Evangelist Papaya Mobile), Michael Pachter (Analyst Wedbush), Gareth Edmonson (CEO Thumbstar) and too many more to mention, all chaired by the formidable Charles Cecil (he of Broken Sword fame).
I gave a talk looking out on what we are trying to achieve for BlackBerry 10 on the gaming front, and here are the slides to it (some of which may only make sense if you actually attended…).
Today, I had the great pleasure to attend and speak at the rather wonderful “Games for Brands” conference in good old London town (held near the Tower of London with some lovely drinks at St. Catherine Docks; need I say more?). Great turn-out, great speakers, inspiring discussions and a lot of catching up with good friends and new contacts.
I have been asked to share my slides, which I herewith do. I hope you find them useful.
Earlier this spring, I had the opportunity to discuss one of the current buzzwords, namely gamification, at the Connected Creativity event at MIP TV with the excellent Kevin Slavin (of area/code fame and, more recently, Starling), moderated by entertainment maven extraordinaire, Robert Tercek.
I had posted my slides earlier but now also found the wonderful organisers captured it on video, too. Enjoy!
Earlier this week, I participated on a panel at the Connected Creativity conference at MIP TV in Cannes on the buzzword-ruling topic of “gamification” (make sure to watch Jesse Schell’s now legendary talk “Desigining outside the Box“). The discussion (here’s a quick write-up on the MIP blog) was preceded by a brief presentation. These were my slides:
Today, I was able to deliver a talk at SXSWi in Austin on my ever favourite subject of mobile social gaming, here for good measure dramatically enhanced and labelled the new frontier . Here are the slides to this:
