This week on the cast, I spoke with Michael Hartman from Frogdice on the Game-Wisdom Livestream about the history of the MMO market. We discussed how things grew and collapsed, and started to talk about his latest game Stash.
We’re going big with today’s Critical Thought. Our topic is on the crash of the MMO genre during the 00’s. Several factors led to the market crashing for a lot of developers, and those very same issues could mirror the mobile game market today. We have seen some developers survive in interesting ways, and then an entire change in the design philosophy with F2P. Be sure to watch after my little end of video speech, as I forgot the last topic that had to be added in afterwards.
