Overview: Last year at GDC, the Google Maps Platform team launched a gaming solution that has begun transforming the mobile game industry. Game developers are now able to build immersive real-world games powered by Google Maps' understanding of the real-world's dynamism. This talk will share insights from their first wave of real-world game launches. Learn how Mixi, creator of the long-time successful puzzle game, 'Monster Strike', added real-world "MonSpots" to boost engagement and allow players to take the game with them anywhere. See how Next Games, creator of 'The Walking Dead: Our World,' used Google Maps Platform to design gameplay that strengthened through teaming up players from different parts of the world and leveraging their unique surroundings. Attend this talk for a preview of what Google Maps Platform is launching in 2019 to push the limits of this rapidly emerging genre and enable gamers to interact with the real world in ways never possible before.
