Theme for FGS 5: "Evolve your game"

The official theme for FGS 5 is "Evolve Your Game". Why?

Flash game developers are expanding (evolving) their games into new platforms and technologies, opening up new opportunities and revenue streams. This means that they have to change (evolve) their workflow and game design process to properly adapt their product to each technology and device. Evolution isn't only taking place for developers making games on multiple platforms. As competition in the online Flash games market increases, Flash game developers today are are faced with the challenge of making higher quality games more quickly than ever before. Flash game publishers are also embracing the new world order by augmenting (evolving) their businesses to include mobile, 3D, and other technologies to their stable of Flash games.

Being an indie game developer, small development team, or publisher has never been more exciting...and challenging. Games are evolving.
