Ever wonder how you can maximize your UX (user experience) and game design to create an engaged community?
In this workshop, we will look into community-centric design, methods you can use to create a community-based experience by blending various game design and UX tools together. We will go over a series of tricks developers have used in the past that help encourage community growth, giving tips on maintaining a community engrossed in your game (examples include how your game is showcased to others when people start taking videos of gameplay; how to design your game for specific communities in mind such as speed runners or fan artists; developing methods to take screenshots/gifs/videos in-game).
The aim – to answer the question “If I couldn’t interact with my players outside of the game, how can I best build a community”
Open to everyone of all ages, backgrounds, genders, and identities.
