Session Name In the Hearts of Players: Affection Games and Mobile Love
Speaker(s) Lindsay Grace
Company Name(s) American University
Track / Format Smartphone & Tablet Games Summit
Overview There are more than 500 digital games that require players to flirt (78 games), hug (four games), kiss (299 games), and make love to meet their goals. Unsurprisingly, these games are largely made by indies. Based on the most comprehensive analysis of affection games, this presentation unpacks the world of forbidden flirts and long awaited kisses. In a world of unrealized game potential and interest in increasing demographic reach, affection games offer a refreshing perspective. The presentation outlines the variety of affection games providing attendees with a comprehensive understanding of this emerging game genre beyond dating sims.
