GDC Highlights: Design Lessons, VR Tips, and an Iwata Tribute
GDC Highlights: Design Lessons, VR Tips, and an Iwata Tribute
March 17, 2016 | By Bryant Francis

Emerging from the hazy gloom of the Game Developers Choice Awards, denizens and visitors to San Francisco descended upon Moscone Center for another day of talks, expo displays, and conversation as the Game Developers Conference rolled into its fourth day. To keep you up to date on the most important subjects, we’ve got a social roundup from attendees at the show and our own coverage on Gamasutra. 

Be sure to follow us @Gamasutra on Twitter for live updates during GDC, and check out our Vine channel for developer tips from attendees at the show!


Magic the Gathering’s Mark Rosewater took the time to break down 20 important lessons about game design—all of which you can see up above!

Our Developer flash interviews roll on during the show, this time bringing you a bit of advice from Fantastic Contraption’s Sarah Northway and Sony’s Richard Marks. 

Platinum Games’s Atushi Inaba took the stage to describe Platinum’s process for developing successful action games—we’ll be giving a full rundown in a later writeup, but for now, here’s a couple slides that contain the basics of Inaba’s personal tenants of good action design. 

And lastly, we have to note the outpouring of love and support from game developers and players across the world for the official GDCA tribute to Satoru Iwata at last night’s Game Developer Awards—an outpouring that, we can confirm, left not a single dry eye in the house during the award ceremony itself. 

That's it for day 4, stay tuned to for further coverage and announcements straight from GDC 2016!
