Who (at the this Summit) hasn't laid awake at night and wondered where our industry is headed? Or worried about how to make their game better and/or sell more tomorrow?

In this session, join experienced developers for an interactive conversation about the current and future state of the smartphone and tablet game development industry. Hear from both indie and mainstream developers about the big questions that keep them awake at night and propel them to go to work in the morning. After the opening monologues, audience members can take to the microphone to ask questions and/or share their own experiences of creating new types of video games in this thriving and rapidly changing environment. What are the big questions we should be asking and answering as smartphones overtake feature phones and tablets become a part of everyday life? Connect with your peers in this unique session and take the discussion back home to your friends and co-workers.
