April Meeting

by Darius Kazemi on April 3, 2008

in Event announcements,Post Mortem

Post Mortem is coming up next week: note that the meeting is Wednesday, not Tuesday as you might guess (the Skellig was booked, sorry). Our speaker will be Alex Engel from Turbine, and here’s the info on his talk.

Title: Exploring the Exploitation of Online Games: Real Money Transactions

Description: The explosion in popularity of online games such as World of Warcraft has created a lucrative secondary market for virtual items and goods. This has caused friction between players who engage in these activities and companies who discourage it. Drawing on experience from several Massively Multiplayer games, Turbine’s Alex Engel will discuss the problems and challenges of dealing with groups that play your games for profit, not fun.

Logistics:
Wednesday April 9, 7pm
The Skellig in Waltham

Hope to see you all!
