John O’Neill at ECGC ’13

Earlier in April we took a road trip to ECGC. While we were at this serious and important conference for game developer, we some how tricked fine and upstanding members of the development community into talking to us about the evolving market, monetization, beards and even Space Jam. The above interview is one such occurrence.

John O’Neill gave a speech on the evolving industry and what he considers to be the best method of monetization and multiple applications of the same technology. He is not calling for game companies to resell the same game, but take the technologies that they have developed for a single product and utilize them in multiple, interesting ways. John is also a strong advocate for creating a developer culture of cooperation rather than competition.

In the spirit of full disclosure it shall be known that John once gave us pizza.
