Staying in Top Eleven: Improving Retention Through the Tutorial

Aleksandar Markovic  |  Game Designer, Nordeus


Location: Congress Saal 1

Format: Lecture
Track: Design
Vault Recording: Video


Markovic will present insights gained during the development of step-by-step tutorials, as a retention effort in Top Eleven. The design team found ways to make sure players skipped as few tutorial steps as possible, achieving an impressive percentage of finished tutorials. Markovic will show some neat techniques to improve your tutorial and identify potential situations where tutorials aren't as necessary as you might think.

Takeaway

Attendees will be presented with a lengthy analysis that gives some advice on building a quality tutorial and questions some preconceptions about it altogether.

Intended Audience

Well-documented experiments and examples will be of interest to anyone who has 'improve retention' on their to-do list. Anyone with an interest in game tutorials in general should also have a good time.
