External Development Summit
It’s not often we have a gaming conference in our back yard (Vancouver, BC), but it’s about to happen for the second time this year.
First we had PocketGamer Connects in June, and next week we have XDS (External Development Summit) from September 6th to 9th.
I will be at the Summit every day, so if you or someone from your org is planning to attend, drop me a line. I know all the good coffee shops and cocktail lounges in town and would be happy to buy!
Hope your summer is ending well,
Why Play? Saber’s Edge is a match 3 puzzle battler with a really cool twist on combining moves between characters that we haven’t seen before. The steampunk air pirate theme is also strong and they are checking all of the standard F2P boxes. Overall it’s a very solid match 3 offering.
Why Play? Six! has been climbing the top free charts recently and for good reason – it’s an insanely addictive arcade game that combines both physics and a puzzle element to keep players guessing each play through.
CompulsionLoop is AC+A’s (adriancrook.com) weekly pursuit of providing a Featured List for those in the games industry. A look at the latest must-play apps, along with short, useful takeaways from our team of game design and product experts. If you have a game that you think your industry colleagues should try, we’d love to hear about it at firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t forget to tell us why industry insiders should be compelled to try out the game (see what we did there?).
Know a game that you think others should play? Let us know and tell us why we should play it.
Thank you for reading and we look forward to helping you discover more games that you can glean learnings from. Feel free to reply to this email or contact email@example.com — we’re always happy to hear from you.
Have a great week!- Adrian Crook www.adriancrook.com
