Video: Learn how to better use emotion in game design

In this 2020 GDC Summer session, Celia Hodent presents a scientific approach to how you can take advantage of emotional reactions to improve your game in the context of a game UX mindset.

No matter what kind of game you make, your players will form some kind of emotional relationship with it. How can you engage with your players in a way that responds to their real emotional reactions?

At GDC Summer, UX expert Celia Hodent gave a presentation to educate developers on how they can better orient their user experience to design to respond to players' emotional needs. With her help, you can use a scientific process to figure out how to delight and engage your players in new and fantastic ways.

Hodent's presentation also includes a Q&A with the audience, one you can watch for free on the GDC YouTube channel.
