June Garage – Social Gaming Dynamics

The June garage is soon upon us – this Thursday evening, at the usual venue of Sun Microsystems, 45 King William St.

This week we’re focusing on social gaming dynamics – what makes great social games inside facebook, how do you make classic games that go on for years, and how do you apply gaming dynamics to non-gaming applications?

On top of our already announced speakers, Karl Bunyan from Social Cash and Alex Fleetwood from Hide & Seek, we’ll be joined by:

Sam Mathews, founder of Fnatic, one of the world’s leading professional video gaming teams, talking about the professional gaming industry and what it takes for a multiplayer game become a classic that will last for years; and

Sokratis Papafloratos, CEO and co-founder of TrustedPlaces.com, talking about how they’ve applied gaming mechanics to increase engagement and retention in a non-gaming community site.
