Making Deep Games: An inspirational workshop about harnessing the power of metaphors for experience design
Thursday, January 8, 2009 @ 10:00 am EST
In this workshop, attendees will learn how to become more conscious about the mechanisms of complex abstract concepts, to pin down their evasive elements, to translate them into concrete rule sets and to make them tangible via procedural metaphors. This workshop aims at demystifying complex abstract ideas such as HONOR, REGRET, LOYALTY or JUSTICE by teaching a methodology to analyse and dissect them. It is a step-by-step tutorial to foster awareness, reflection, inspiration and a systematic approach to the purposeful design of deep games.
