Tuesday, June 30, 5:30pm (Vision 3 Studios, Indianapolis) - Creating Affective Applications
How do you design great experiences? At the crossroads of game design and user experience are affective applications, or products that make us feel a certain way. Games are inherently affective applications. They change the way a player or end-user feels whether through motivation, aesthetics, morality, or social dimensions. Join us for a chat on how you can use the “affective element” to design better games and products. Presented by Dr. David Whittinghill of Purdue Polytechnic Institute Co-hosted event between IGDA and Indiana UXPA.
