In military theory, the levels of war are classically divided into strategic, operational and tactical levels. While most games in the genre get away with the "strategy" or "RTS" stamp, two different games can sometimes be nothing alike. A better understanding of some basic military discipline when building a strategy game will help designers better define their niche, evaluate their game against the right target market, and find places where they can innovate.
Attendees will become familiarized with the concept of "levels of war" in military theory, understand via examples how it applies to different games in the strategy genre, and have a clear grasp on how they can incorporate it into their own games.
This talk specifically targets game designers, but can also be of interest to anyone with mild interest in strategy games. It is recommended that audience members are at least somewhat familiar with a few strategy games. However, no prior hands on game design experience is required.
