    The games industry has the highest rate of creative destruction in tech, as we permanently contend with new platforms, business models, design and art trends. This ever-shifting landscape forces large games entities to retreat into familiar tropes with certain commercial outcomes, but the future belongs to those who innovate, pushing the creative boundaries of the products and the outer limits of technology. This talk will review a series of concepts ripe to be exploited by fearless indies or corporate rebels everywhere, from flicksyncs to metaverse-morphing neural networks.
