In a post yesterday, IGEA have outlined their panel at PAX Aus this year.
The panel titled, “Games Industry Trends – beyond 2014″ will be moderated by IGEA CEO, Ron Curry.
Curry will be joined by Professor Jeff Brand, who will “present trends from the Digital Australia series and offer some insight as to what we can expect for DA16”, which is set to be released in August next year.
Jeff’s presentation, entitled ‘Games and players get serious’ will “put forward some wild predictions (although probably not that wild) of what our market looks like as everyone plays, or beginning to play. Jeff will discuss how we are nearing the end of the installation phase of media progress and touch on games for health and wellness, serious games, gamification, making games and games based learning.”
Rounding out the panel is Telsyte Managing Director, Foad Fadaghi. Foad will “discuss the direct and indirect changes to the ways games are created, purchased and used in the post-pc era, but also what might be around the corner. From wearable computers to cloud gaming, Foad will be drawing upon Telsyte’s Digital Consumer Study which has been measuring Australian consumer technology trends and intentions for almost a decade.”
The panel will take place in the Dropbear Theatre on Saturday November 1 at 4:30 pm.
