About Amy Jo Kim


I’m a game designer & startup coach, working with product leaders to bring their ideas to life.  I’ve run and sold a venture-funded startup – and written a best-selling book about innovating smarter with Game Thinking.  Through it all, I’ve learned what works—and what doesn’t—when you’re bringing a risky idea to life. I’m bringing that knowledge to startups, game studios, and companies worldwide in our Game Thinking courses and programs. 


About Mike Sellers


I’m a seasoned, collaborative leader and mentor with two deep experience making successful, award-winning games. I co-created Meridian 59, the first graphical MMO – and worked on a number of other titles. I now run the Game program at Indiana University.  I’m the author of “Advanced Game Design: A Systems Approach” – a university-level textbook that delivers a systems-thinking approach to game development.
