guest post from Wooga
Social Media Week is back and there are only a couple more days left until the international conference will open its doors in Berlinon Monday. Germany’s largest free web conference expects to welcome around 8,000 visitors and Wooga is really happy to be part of this ambitious project.
Themed “Empowering Change through Collaboration”, the conference will offer more than 140 events from 24 – 28 September 2012. Open for everyone, Social Media Week seeks to gather people who are interested in discussing the worldwide social, cultural, and economic impact of social media.
Attendees in Berlin can look forward to an interesting panel discussion, an inspiring presentation, and a thrilling gameplay experience from Wooga.
First off on 24 September, Fabian will drop some purple knowledge bombs on the panel, “Like, Share, Comment – The Impact of Social Media for Entertainment Brands”, at Fluxbau (24 September, 7.30-8.30 pm @Radio Flux HQ).
This will be followed by Wooga’s presentation Tag Team, Stephanie and Timo, who will elaborate on “Metrics Do Not Substitute A Good Design: On Magic Numbers and Endless Love” (27 September, 1.15-1.45pm @Naherholung Sternchen). Drawing from their learnings across all Wooga games, Stephanie and Timo will show that certain magic numbers have a dramatic impact on their games – and that you shouldn’t bother to ‘measure everything’. Be prepared for lots of visuals and a fun experience.
Alongside Stephanie’s and Timo’s presentation, visitors at Naherholung Sternchen will have the one-time opportunity to test their gaming skills in an epic arcade battle featuring two of Wooga’s most beloved characters. Built by a very talented group of engineers in their spare time, ‘Wooga Fighter’ reminisces about old classics and will be available during 27 September.
Those who dare to test their old school arcade skills, can take a picture of themselves playing and tweet it (Hashtag: #woofighters). And who knows, maybe you will end up winning one of our über-cool and very contested Wooga Monster shirts.
Bring It On!
