Tom Chatfield speaks on the following topic:
We're bringing gameplay into more aspects of our lives, spending countless hours -- and real money -- exploring virtual worlds for imaginary treasures. Why? As Tom Chatfield shows, games are perfectly tuned to dole out rewards that engage the brain and keep us questing for more.

At the present time we only have 5 rooms reserved at the location of the conference.

Although I've never actually hunted for treasure, popular culture has taught me that treasure maps are not 100% accurate. It seems treasure maps indicate only approximately where the booty might be hidden, but through the collection of clues the resourceful pirate will find his prize.
Designing a social game is similar. At the start of the project we use a combination of research, experience, and prototyping to design the game. This design sets the general direction. Only when…Continue

What have FarmVille, FrontierVille, and Facebook's most popular game, CityVille, got in common? All made by Zynga, all very popular, all making barrels of cash, all have the suffix "Ville"... so lots of things in common really.
