gold extra's Georg Hobmeier will present another iteration of his talk on documentary games at the creative hub Poligon in Slovenia's capital Ljubljana:
Only a small fraction of the global gaming market is featuring themes that aren't of a fictional nature. Even fewer games are using extensive research as part of their development process and are striving for a type of experience that could be called documentary or docu games. However, there's a tremendous amount of potential laying dormant, offering new solutions not only for game design and content development, but also for marketing and monetization. In this sessions he would like to introduce the audience to some selected projects, some of them my own creations, highlighting the unique ways in which these projects were conceived, funded and developed.
