The focus of the masterclass is the economy and progression systems in the freemium/free-to-play part of the gaming market, as well as the role of the Game Economy Designer. The subjects addressed, however, can be easily applied to premium games.
At the end of the course, the students:
- Will have a better understanding of the main elements of a freemium game
- Will be able to define rules and basic systems of progression for games and the way in which they interact with each other
- Will have an overview of the economy and resource flow in a game
