After Summer Update

Hi everyone!

Summer is almost over and SoPlay is back on track. Our first research article has been accepted to MindTrek-conference, which will be held in Tampere on 30th Sep – 2nd Aug. Our first article, “The Many Faces of Sociability and Social Play in Games”, discusses the different social aspects found in single player, two player, multiplayer and massively multiplayer games.

Aki Järvinen will be holding a social games design workshop in the MindTrek-conference and we encourage our industry partners and others who are interested to participate!

Currently we are working with several things in SoPlay. The first working report “Play and Games in Social Media” is on the way and presents examples from playful activity as well as important factors relating to important features in social platforms and games. We also have other articles coming up, but they are still on the drawing board. Last but not least, we are planning our first user interviews which are to be done during this fall.

To get a crash course back into social games, here are some videos from the Social Gaming Summit 2009, which was held in June. Enjoy and have a nice day.
