Austin Education Game Jam
Think of it as a hack-a-thon focused on educational game development. Unfortunately, much of the educational games landscape is cluttered with poorly designed or simply uninteresting games that fail to deliver meaningful learning outcomes. Often, the games in education are not designed by expert game developers who specialize in fun, engaging technology, and therefore fail to enthrall the students who play them. Topnotch game developers with the guidance of students and educators came together over the weekend of March 7-9 and built games that are both fun and standards aligned. Industry professionals awarded three prizes: Best educational game content, best use of augmented reality tools, and best in show. Come see what these award winners developed in 48 hours!

Prerequisites:
No prerequisites, although some experience with game design, narratives, system thinking, and board games is a bonus.
What to Bring:
No materials required to bring.
A practical workshop to come up with new approaches in narrative design for open worlds. It’s an effort to breath in new life into the age old discussion between games and stories. Instead of superficially looking at the differences between games and stories, we will delve deep into their structures and try to marry elements together that form meaning.
For the workshop we will supply the participants with a physical prototype of an open game world. The prototype is not finished product. Instead it is designed to experiment with the problem and try different solutions quickly. The physical prototype will resemble a board game, but will be recognizable as the prototype for a computer game nonetheless. This form allows us to quickly dig deep into the meat of the problem: different structures underlying games and stories.
The workshop will last 4 hours and breaks down into several segment. During the first hour we will introduce the participants to the problem in general, the physical prototype we’ll be using to design solutions, and the specifics of the task at hand. After a short break the participants will work on problem for roughly 45 minutes, after which we’ll playtest each other’s solution. After a break we’ll challenge the participants with new assignments and have them work on new prototypes during the third hour. The final hour will be reserved for final playtests, discussion, and wrap-up.
The workshop itself is pretty open. We have no specific strategy in mind that solves the problem of narratives in open game worlds. So we are looking forward to interesting take-aways as much as the participants where the main problems are concerned. However, we do expect to cover some ground and hopefully the participants can learn from the general hands-on, design-oriented approach we take to solving this hairy problem. We expect everybody to walk away with a much clearer perspective on the problem, a better understanding of the conflicting structures of games and stories, and at least some ideas for possible solutions.

Chicken or the Egg: Seasonality and Game Sales
Anyone who has braved a Black Friday probably knows video games sell well in the holiday season. However, there is a question of whether the high sales in the holiday period are the chicken or the egg. The majority of major releases with critical acclaim and huge marketing budgets are released during the holiday season. So would these major titles fare just as well at other times during the year? And how is the introduction of new platforms, such as mobile, and digital distribution methods changing the release timing landscape. EEDAR Head of Insights and Analytics, Patrick Walker, shows data from the EEDAR database that explores the relationship between game sales and seasonality, both for traditional retail game distribution and in the context of the changing games market.
