SkillsCast

Modelling a large scale social game with Neo4j

30th April 2014 in London at Skills Matter

There are 2 other SkillsCasts available from The graphs of gaming and recruitment

The challenge of modelling and balancing the economy of a large scale game is one of the biggest problems game developers face - akin to catching Bigfoot.

Learn how Gamesys did it by leveraging graph database Neo4j to model the in-game economy of our MMORPG “Here Be Monsters” and automate the balancing process.

We'll discuss lessons learned, successes and challenges, and how a graph database enables our small team of game designers to stay agile and focused on delivering new content to players.
