Core games are known for their deep gameplay and fanatical players, but the genre hasn't been able to reach the mass audience the way casual has on the mobile platform. For years, John Hsu has guided the assimilation of core mechanics into Kiwi's casual games, combining the retention and monetization potential of mid-core mechanics with the mass appeal of casual games.
John will explain how to break down core game systems, retention mechanics and monetization features, and apply a casual "skin" to them. Attendees will receive examples and strategies to adjust their own games, as well as how they frame casual game design, as it fits their overall goals.
