  1. Don’t Starve: Creating Community Around an Antisocial Game

    In early 2011, Klei Entertainment started development on a new IP game called Don’t Starve. Having worked successfully with traditional publishers for our previous console titles, we decided to experiment with a different approach. Through a rapid development process that was tightly bound to community building, Don’t Starve went from a 16-hour game jam to a million-unit success. This 2014 talk from Klei’s Kevin Forbes recounts the game’s development, from its concept to eventual success, describing its unlikely rise, and sharing both learnings and data around community engagement. GDC talks cover a range of developmental topics including game design, programming, audio, visual arts, business management, production, online games, and much more. We post a fresh GDC video every weekday. Subscribe to the channel to stay on top of regular updates, and check out GDC Vault for thousands of more in-depth talks from our archives.

  2. Watch Raph Koster Design a Game on the Fly

    This interview started out simple enough as an interview about what Raph Koster is currently working on. But then it turned into a game designed on the fly that solves problems and educates us at the same time. It was amazing to see. I’m very happy to be able to share this with you. ~Marcus

  3. Collaboration and community building on the web: Amy Jo Kim at TEDxUSC

    There has been a surge in gaming in the past ten years, and a lot of it has to do with the ideas that Amy Jo has been spreading for quite some time now. With an eclectic background in neuroscience, computer science, and psychology, she is part game designer, part web community architect and helped pioneer the idea that game mechanics make Web design more engaging, sticky, and viral by encouraging certain behaviors. She is noted for her influential conceptual frameworks for online communities, in particular the Membership Lifecycle that was presented in her 2000 book, Community Building on the Web, a design handbook for networked communities. It is considered to be a "cult classic" and has become required reading in game design studios and university classes worldwide. Amy Jo holds a PhD in Behavioral Neuroscience from the University of Washington, a BS in Experimental Psychology from UC San Diego, and teaches Game Design at the USC School of Cinematic Arts. Most recently, she has been pondering a framework for how people interact with games that reflects social structure — and furthermore, pondering how social structure influences games.
