In this post the newest member of the AC+A crew Sandra Wong explains how a social casino game designer can help you.
The title is very niche, so with this post I wanted to share a bit more in depth as to what a social casino game designer might help you with. Like other game designers who design for other target audiences, a social casino game designer simply focuses their game design on the casino players market. Casino game players include but are not limited to poker players, slots players, black jack players, bingo players, fantasy sports etc.
My primary goal is to make sure your social casino game integrates the psychology of casino players, casual gamer behaviors and the players wants and needs right into the fabric of your game design process. By doing this, your social casino game will provide players with the best experience possible on any device they choose. Your game will be tuned to appeal to a target audience on a psychological level while ensuring you have the highest retention and monetization rates possible in a social casino game.
