|Session Name:||Design Lessons from Multiplayer Installations|
|Company Name(s):||Alistair Aitcheson Games|
|Track / Format:||Independent Games Summit|
Independent developer, Alistair Aitcheson, builds quirky multiplayer experiences about physical contact and social interaction. These include 52 player games for giant touchscreens, one of the first installations for the UK's National Videogame Arcade, and a wireless button kit to run physically active games in any environment.
In this session the developer will share what physical spaces can teach us about game design and player experience. He'll explore what unconventional interfaces tell us about how players embody themselves within UI. He'll share techniques for creating pace and surprise, expressive play, and unique stories for players to bring home with them.
