This Week's Standout Member Blogs Top 5 problems faced by indie game developers (Kate Reichert) Kate Reichert offers a humorous list of a few of the difficulties faced by indie game developers (It should be noted that all jokes come from a place of love). The new age: Reflections on Dragon Age (Mark Filipowich) BioWare has announced the third installment in its highly regarded Dragon Age series. While the team has kept most details about the next title close to the chest so far, Mark Filipowich says it offers an opportunity to look back at where the series has been. How to reduce antisocial behavior in your game (Travis Ross) Reducing antisocial behavior in online environments can be difficult. Travis Ross describes how theory and research from social science can help game designers understand norms. Gamification, where did the games go? (Ruud Koorevaar) Ruud Koorevaar says we need to start thinking beyond merely adding a layer based on extrinsic motivators with gamification, and look more closely at what makes games interesting and learn from it. Men vs. women in game production roles (Hannah Wood) Gender disparity in business and the games industry has created a long-standing discussion.
