Recently, I've been thinking about the game genres we offer and wondering how they might evolve in the future. Given the fact that the consumer is always evolving it only makes sense that their tastes in games should also evolve. Regardless of whether this takes place online or offline, day-to-day experiences broaden horizons and open eyes to new possibilities. This continuous expansion of thought leads to a need for newer and better experiences that can be served in at least two ways.
First, by improving game development via better stories, better characters, better artwork, or better gameplay mechanics, we can satisfy the consumer's need for continuous improvement and higher quality products. Consider the Mystery Case Files game brand. If you look at each release, you can see the quality of the games always improving. The art is always getting better, the storyline is always more complex, the production quality is ever improving. Big Fish Games Studios is always raising the bar to meet the wants and needs of the consumer.
Second, by expanding our offerings through genre expansion, we can offer an entirely new style of gameplay that opens the door for developers and consumers to explore something new with no expectations. By starting at ground zero, both parties can work together to define the genre and guide it as it grows and expands.
This begs the question - what will be the next genre to emerge as a contender for the limited time game developers have? The need to focus on making games people will be excited about is clear so it is important that game genres get consumers excited.Read more

It's great having our office in the heart of Vancouver. Truly a magnificent city to live in or visit. One Big Fish employee saw the first photo below and quipped, "It looks like two poor saps trying to keep a crowd of zombies at bay with torches..." Funny how gamers often find creative ways to incorporate zombies into everyday life.Read more
