Other GDC Next 10 talks already available for free include HumaNature's Greg Johnson on connecting players emotionally in DokiDoki Universe,The Odd Gentlemen's Matt Korba on 'using Lego and literary genius to prototype Wayward Manor', Double Fine 'rethinking the adventure genre' for Broken Age, Team Dakota on Microsoft multiplatform MMO Project Spark and 'turning players into creators', Capy's Nathan Vella on Super Time Force and "turning game jam games into 'full' games", and SWERY on D4 and 'taking control of the Xbox One's Kinect.'
