Mobile Gaming - From Casual gaming to connected, ad-supported and 3D games.
In the wake of the Game Developers Conference ’07 held from August 27th to 29th at Shanghai International Convention Center (more at http://www.gdcchina.cn/en/), Mobilemonday Shanghai aims at bringing a condensed of the latest gaming trends in China and elsewhere. From the advent of casual games sweeping the market, to the future of high-end games highly leveraging on 3D and broadband connection.
We will also be addressing new business models (ad-funded games, an increasingly popular model in Asia) and Flash-based games, a new “menace” to traditional Java and Symbian gaming developers. Our renowned guests:
