USA - New York, NY | Oct 20 2012 | (23:03:09 - EDT)
EYES IN'S Editor-in-Chief Vivian Van Dijk attended the Mobile Gaming Summit in New York last Friday.
"One of those summits not to be missed if you are involved in gaming, but also for anybody in business, to see how different gaming products and strategies will be more and more involved in daily life. A summit very well-organized with top key players in the industry! Gaming as part of education, in the defense industry, for healthcare purposes or just pure for entertainment, it cannot be overlooked anymore. The audience was given lots of inspiration, focus and plenty of good advice for getting closer to the development of a successful gaming app."
Mobile Gaming Summit is the pioneering event series focused on the present and future of mobile game development. The 2012 Mobile Gaming Summit came to a close on Friday, Oct. 19. Game developers, artists, musicians, advertisers, writers and more gathered to learn about the latest technology news and products revolving around the mobile gaming industry.
The phone is not only where time spent continues to go, but it has ushered in a new area of gaming. An estimated 80 million Americans will play mobile games this year. One in three mobile phone users is a gamer. 8 out of 10 smartphone users has played a mobile game. Top mobile games have more users than console equivalents and are beginning to rival gaming on social.
The mobile environment is unlike any other, and success outside of mobile does not mean success on mobile. Mobile Gaming Summit brings together small developers who want to become big, bigger developers who want to stay relevant, along with brands and platforms looking to understand the future of user engagement.
Audience members of the summit got to go in-depth regarding some very important mobile gaming topics. They discussed single versus multi-player games, the best operating systems to focus on, and how to stand out in a crowded marketplace.
There was also a wealth of guest speakers, including Paul Chambers, the Founder of Happymonitor Games Studio and Jess Haskins, a game designer for Muse Games. Experts for all realms of mobile gaming were present, including representatives from AnyoneGame, Lamplighter Games, Slingo Inc., and OMGPOP.
There was a lot to learn and one day to take it all in. Check out the Mobile Gaming Summit website for more technology news and upcoming mobile gaming events in your area.
