How to Master High Quality User Experience for Games

Microsoft :: 1290 Avenue of the Americas, 6th floor

Quality user experience (UX) design is crucial for avoiding mechanics, interfaces, and situations that frustrate players. What can we learn from UX design to make video games more usable, and therefore more fun? Catt Small, a UX Designer and game maker, will share ways to incorporate UX design techniques into the game-making process.

 

Design has become a major differentiator -- see Dots, SpellTower, and Polygon -- because it leads to better user retention and more sales. Great visual design can’t gloss over a poorly-designed interaction. This session will cover examples of poor usability in games, ways that Catt solved UX design problems in games, and resources for immediately improving usability in your game.
