Happy New Year, everyone!

We hope 2017 is off to a great start for all of you.

To kick things off, we’re starting a new annual tradition of asking our members to take a quick survey, that will help us better understand what you’d like to see from your Boston IGDA chapter in the new year.

This survey should take between five and ten minutes to complete and we’d love your feedback!

“Now That We’ve Found Love (for AR), What Are We Going to Do With It?”
Finally we’re in love with a killer videogame in the AR/VR space. Pokémon Go blew the doors off of mobile gaming, but its graphics are primitive and repetitive gameplay led to an 80% decrease in peak gameplay in two months.

 How can we keep the love going? Let’s diagnose and peer into the future.

About the Presenter:

Johnny Monsarrat was the founder and CEO of Turbine, Inc., the videogames company that won two “Oscars” of  the videogames world, and arguably invented the massively multiplayer online game (MMO) industry, now worth $20 billion a year. The company is now a division of Warner Brothers. His new company, Monsarrat, Inc., has now invented Big Movement Gaming, which combines the best parts of augmented reality and MMO gameplay to make something truly new.

 He is an Ivy League award-winning public speaker.
