Tough Questions in Games - How We Let the Players Think

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

Feedback form is now closed.
Description:
Among some players and developers we see a yearning for a deeper sense of meaning they can rarely find. Games that deal with difficult questions of our time - politics, conflicts, existential angst, climate threats and religion etc. These are questions we've dealt with in most other mediums before, but in games it's still a very uncharted territory. This talk is about how to come up with mechanics and a game experience that is open for the player to explore yet have some sort of authorial intent. In this case ECS' game Crest will be used as a case study.

Take Away
A better understanding how you can give the player more substance in your games without removing interactivity.
