|Session Name:||Prompto's Facebook: How a Buddy-AI Auto-Snapshots Your Adventure in FFXV|
|Company Name(s):||Square Enix|
|Track / Format:||Design|
Photos are what make a trip. In 'Final Fantasy XV', one of your camera-maniac best buddies, Prompto, will automatically take a picture of your adventure in the game for you. The snapshot he takes is not the classic screenshot that most users are familiar with. Instead it is a picture what Prompto actually sees in the game, enhanced with some fun features. Since no one does the same play, no one will have the same picture as you; the image represents your unique adventure. So, just as you do after a trip with your friends, you can share these photos on social media such as Facebook. This new feature changes the whole user experience of 'Final Fantasy XV' and is introducing the world to a new concept of gameplay sharing. This session will describe the design behind the system, through both UX and technical perspectives.
