In this 2019 GDC talk, Abiding Bridge's Elizabeth Maler presents her innovative ways of designing, writing and playtesting social impact games, and gives advice on how to ensure their ability to change lives.
It was a great talk about an under-discussed topic in the game industry, one Maler peppered with lots of practical examples that fellow game devs could take learnings and inspiration from.
If you missed seeing it live, or just want to refresh your memory, take advantage of the fact that Maler's talk is now free to watch via the official GDC YouTube channel!
