Session Description
Social Games. Flash. Virtual Goods. Social Graphs…

Why are designers of some of the most renowned MMOs leaving their traditional gaming roots to build web games? Moreover, why are they building games that live across social networks? Do they know something we don’t? Or are they misguided, following the latest sparkly trend?

Come hear from designers of games such as Rock Band, Star Wars Galaxies, Lord of the Rings Online, Everquest & Everquest II, and Ultima Online talk about why they’re now full time on Web based games. They’ll talk about what design influences they are bringing to bear on their new social games and why they think this is the future of MMOs.
