Post-GDC post

We all managed to avoid the GDC flu but are still pretty quiet for now, waiting for a time when the workload eases up and we can blog more frequently again. TO hold you over a bit until then, here are the presentations from the lectures Diane and I delivered during the week of the GDC.

In chronological order, here are the slides from my presentation during the Social and Online Game summit of the GDC:

GDC12 Keys to the European Market

I ran out of time and couldn’t cover the case studies in the end, so even if you attended you should find a few extra details in here.

 

Diane lectured on Business Models: current trends and perspective for the future. She didn’t run out of time, and some of the slides don’t speak for themselves very well, but you may still find the presentation useful:

From Brighton to Munich

On Tuesday 13th of July, I presented my lecture “Games as a service, do you really know what it means?” at the Develop in Brighton conference. While I have changed the slides a bit for the event, the content was essentially the same as when I presented it in Seattle for the LOGIN conference, and you can find the presentation on slideshare.


The really good news is that Dan Hon did a great write up of my presentation (something I meant to do for a while but never took the proper time to do) and you can find it on his blog:

F2P in Europe presentation – From Quo Vadis

Quo Vadis was in April, so this presentation update is coming to you with some delay, but better late than never (as they say)!

I have decided to change the format of the presentation though. Rather than uploading the one that supported my lecture at Quo Vadis, I’ve made a “generic” presentation based on it (which in turn was based on one for GFG that I gave this past January in Hannover). The new presentation is essentially the same as the Quo Vadis version, but rather than adding another Slideshare presentation, I replaced the GFG presentation and changed the title to make it less specific. The idea is to simplify the information and point people at the most up-to-date version of the material. You can still find a few similar presentations in our profile, which I’ve left alone as they contain uniquely useful info.

Here is the new presentation:

In other news, you may have noticed that we’ve recently redesigned our website, which now includes a Korean version. It’s a work in progress, so if there’s anything you would like to on the site, please let us know.

KGC 2009 wrap-up

kgcThe past week in Korea has been very busy for us. We attended the KGC event for the first time this year, and it has been a very nice experience.

Thomas spoke at KGC, presenting not one lecture, but two! Both went very well, with a very attentive audience that was thirsty for knowledge on the European market and the European players.

The presentations are on SlideShare now:.

This presentation is similar to others we’ve done during the year. Some of the numbers have been updated, and as always we have provided additional information from previous iterations. The section on how to enter the European market, and related advice, has been fleshed out more thoroughly.

This is quite a new angle for us. We prepared this lecture at the request of the KGC organizers, and we can honestly say it was a lot of fun to prepare. We’d like to develop it even further, but we hope that in its current form it has enough material to be useful to its intended audience (non-European developers).

As ever, feedback on both presentations is very welcome!

[You may have noticed that those presentations feature a different logo than our previous materials. We'll talk more about that soon, but for now let's just say that we felt the need to move on to an image that's more representative of ICO's spirit.]
