Onboarding to Hyper-Casual (EN)
Everyone wants to develop a hit mobile game that will cross 50-100 million downloads, but you may need some onboarding to Hyper-Casual before you can create a winning prototype. In this talk we'll discuss how building the right Hyper-Casual prototype can save you time and resources, as well as land you a publishing deal that will fund your development costs AND push your game to the top. We'll focus on different aspects such as what can make your studio and prototype stand out, how to design for mass appeal, and why creating a retention mechanism can turn your game idea to this summer's #1."
