Monetization

Filed under: video — Tags: , , — zproxy @ 9:16 am

This post is about multiple topics in one. Due to technical limitations I was not able to embed the talks in this post and as such I am only able to provide you links to them.

In march Nonoba was seen over here.

Now in September Chris from Nonoba has attended yet another talk:

PlaySpan invites you to join a gathering of senior game industry executives and thought leaders to discuss the present and future of monetizing online games, virtual worlds and social networks.

Schedule Builder

GDC Vault has multiple talks from GDC Austin 09 ready for you over here (slides only?).

GDC Austin Expo

The Red Couch at level3.com has additional videos over here.

Where is the money?

One of the slides referenced above pointed me to Jussi’s blog. Clearly one should now focus on a virtual world technology.

Costumer Development Patterns

So where are the costumers who will pay? How do we identify them?

Costumers, markets and business shall be tested by a separate process:

Do you happen to have the irrational passion to execute your dreams? Passion is guessing. Are you an enterpreneur?

If a customer really loves your product, they will buy enough to get your company started.

Code with bugs will create different maintenance opportunities!

How to write a startup pitch?

Slides are here.

The Elevator Pitch – What How and Why. How to end a pitch? Close with a bang!

Sleep is that time you’re working on startup problems with your eyes close

Iterate your ideas on a whiteboard and use your sleep, shower and jogging time to process the ideas. When you come back change your white board. This is the fastest way to plan your company.

Stratus + Nonoba + ? = Massive Multiplayer

Filed under: life — Tags: , , — zproxy @ 8:20 am

Could stratus be used to connect multiple nonoba game instances? Here is the first diagram showing what I am thinking.

Every user client could be upgraded to admin client. By upgrading the client will act like a router, so it should be online for a while. Maybe we should give some stimulus to the player for that.

Awesomium

Filed under: life — Tags: , , , , — zproxy @ 12:28 pm

Today I learned, that there is a 3D internet explorer renderer out there.

This is what it looks like if you would be playing my treasure hunt multiplayer flash game.

What did I do to make it work?

  • Download Awesomium v1.0 demo
  • Add a link to the game in media\demo.html
  • Select Direct3D9 renderer

I guess there is room for more 3d browsers… and don’t forget Cooliris.
