Niantic Talks Pokémon GO At This Year’s GDC



During this year’s GDC, Niantic’s Dennis Hwang hosted a panel which focused primarily on Pokémon GO, which released for smartphones last year and quickly became a global phenomenon of immense proportions.


In the panel, Hwang covered a handful of topics, mostly relating to how real-world gaming influenced the UX and visual design of the game, and how all of this came together to create an enjoyable and accessible app that could be played by a vast age demographic.
