Richard Bartle
Roy Trubshaw in 1978, he is seen as one of the pioneers of massively multiplayer games.

The author of “Designing Virtual Worlds” (2003), whose research inspired the popular “Bartle Test” for players of MMOGs is working as a professor at the University of Essex, England. He gives on his expertise in massively multiplayer games by lecturing game design to students and by contributing to “Terra Nova”, the most important blog about virtual worlds. Richard Bartle was awarded “The Pioneer Award” in 2005 for his part in creating the first MUD and the “Online Legend Award” in 2010.

Prof. Dr. Bartle’s keynote at the browsergames forum will be entitled “Gardens of Unearthly Delights”.
“Who else than one of the pioneers of MMOGs is better suited to open one of the most important networking event for web-based massively multiplayer games? We think Prof. Dr. Bartle’s keynote is a great way to start this year’s browsergames forum.”  (Florian Mai, Conference Manager browsergames forum ltd.)
