World Building with Architecture


Architecture can drive your game's narrative, opening up a world of opportunities. The key to a breathtaking world is incorporating unexpected insight, which is hard to convey without words. This lecture will look at the benefits of conveying concepts through architecture, citing AAA titles as case studies. These opportunities range from providing an immersive tutorial experience to enriching lore and providing characterization. Through the lens of architectural theory, this session will critically evaluate the opportunities available in each case study. It'll also take a deep dive into the way architects critique each other and share a formula for keeping comments constructive.
