From Aesthetics to Ethics - It's not 'Just a Game'

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Description:
When talking about ethics in game design we're not talking violence in games. We're talking about credible and consistent game worlds. The more detailed our game worlds become, the more the choice of aesthetics will create a game world able to form an ethical rule set out of its own inherent design rules: aesthetics create ethics. We as designers have to embrace this dynamic to design more satisfying, consistent and challenging game experiences. The talk will present the audience with a number of examples, where differences in the aesthetic choices created rather different ethical experiences.

Take Away
The audience will get an understanding of the connection and complexity between aesthetical decisions and their ethical consequences for the game world.

Audience Adressed: Designers (mech, gfx, sfx, story)
