Developers, if you're thinking about making a new game you might be thinking too small -- why not make a whole new genre? In this GDC Europe 2014 Independent Games Summit session, Game Oven's Adriaan de Jongh (Bounden, Fingle) talks about your experimental games as part of a larger move: as game design for the masses, as easy marketing and as technology-pushing.
