Casual Games SIG at IGDA


Comments (4) | Views (913)

Casual Games SIGThe International Game Developers Association (IGDA) this month announced the creation of a new special interest group for casual game developers, called the Casual Games SIG: "With the massive growth of the casual games marketplace (we) recognized a need within the community for a group focusing solely on the issues unique to casual game developers."

And today, at the Casual Games Conference in Seattle, the group made available its first white paper focusing on the casual games industry. Click.

I'm sad that I could not make it to the conference this year, as GDC was quite expensive for me to attend. However, I will be keeping an eye on the new Casual Games SIG for developments pertaining to this exciting and growing segment of the industry.

And what better time than now to drop a hint about a new site I'm working on: CasualGameplay.com, coming sometime this fall. =)

Hi,
I'm very happy about the new Casual Games SIG. I wanted to go to the conference, but since I live on the other side of the planet I couldn't make it :(

The white paper is very interesting, though they didn't mention JS/dHTML as a game production tool so there is a gap in their research.

I've joined the casual games discussion group and encourage everyone else to join. The casual games market is growing very rapidly and hopefully the discussion group will help generate ideas for new genres and revenue models.

Cheers,
Brent.
