View, browse and sort the ever-growing list of GDC Europe sessions by pass type, track, and format. With GDC Europe Session Scheduler, you can build your schedule in advance and access it during the show via export or with the GDC Europe Mobile App. Sessions do fill up, so please arrive early to sessions that you would like to attend. Adding a session to your schedule does not guarantee you a seat.
In order to best utilize Session Scheduler, please use the login credentials you've set up on this page as your login credentials on our GDC Europe Mobile App. You can download the app on iTunes or Google Play.
*If you have utilized the Mobile App in the past, don’t forget to download the update!
Game balancing can be an esoteric art form, and there are few resources available to learn about it. How long should this quest take? How much should a sword cost? How much health should a Dragon have? This session will provide you with the tools to answer these questions. An emphasis is placed on using formulas to balance the game rather than slow trial and error.
Brian will share the methods used to balance dozens of games and show you how to apply these methods to your game. He will cover the set up, process and share the exercises he's done to prepare for balancing even the most intricate game systems.
This talk is aimed at system designers and product managers who work with in-game values. A basic knowledge of spreadsheet software is required.
Welcome! You can use the Session Scheduler tool to browse sessions and build a custom event schedule. Once you've saved your personal schedule, you can access it from the free GDC Europe Mobile app (available approximately 30 days before the event). Note: use the same login/password on the Mobile app that you set up on this web site.
Step 1. Create an account. Use the "Create Account" button at the top of the right-hand corner.
Step 2. Choose a view. Select either the "List" or the "Grid" icon. (It's the same data, just a different view of the sessions.)
Step 3. Choose your sessions. Click the "Add" or "Remove" button next to each session to add it to, or remove it from, your personalized schedule.
Step 4. Review your schedule. Push the "My Schedule" button in the left column to view your selected sessions.
