Game development is growing exponentially in scale - major increases in team size, content volume and overall complexity are already straining development to the breaking point. As a result, making a game is more painful and costly than ever before. Pipeline iteration rates suffer. Game load times slow to a crawl. And broken builds impede day-to-day progress. In the face of these challenges, next-gen complexity promises to multiply the pain. Online game developers have encountered many of these...

It sounds ridiculous, but thinking of your player as someone you'd love to love is a very effective shortcut to good game design. A player's relationship with a game is intimate, intense, based on trust, and at risk from boredom and infidelity. Ensuring your game behaves like the perfect date ensures players stay involved, stick with you to the end, and pine, love-sick, for your sequel/follow-up. This session shows how your game can pull this off.

Being a game developer can be hazardous to your health. No, really. A lot of people start making games when they are young and end up sacrificing their health without even realizing it.

The truth is that game developers treat their computers better than their own bodies. Heavy-duty mental stress for years on end, bad posture for 18 hours a day, a diet of...
