1. Latin American Game Industry: How can I benefit from it
The Latin American game industry ecosystem has grown fast over the last couple of years. In this lecture we will be talking about what the Latin America game industry has to offer to the rest of the world, from outsourcing, to original IP, to human resources. What are the bigger players, what are the company clusters, game industry events and associations that you might contact to have easy access to most of the developers and of course… we are going to talk about localization a bit.
2. Challenges of designing a Narrative Oriented Gam
In this lecture we will be talking about the different challenges that may arise while making a game that mainly relies on narrative as its main hook. what does your audience might expect from them, how to give alternatives to different kinds of players, ways to spot a phasing issue, ways to circumvent the limitations of a narrative driven game and things to consider while making a game that it’s going to be localized to many languages among other things. Join us, and let’s talk about Narrative
