The Number One Educational Resource for the Game Industry

Session Name:

Art Direction Bootcamp: Digital Beauty: Visual Emotions in Game Development


Video games are undoubtedly considered part of the artistic disciplines. In video games, the process that brings the viewer to beauty is the same as in painting and photography, but in games, there is an element that leads the viewer to interact with the artwork. In this talk, Alessandro Taini will use examples of known video game products to examine what leads the viewer to determine one video game is more beautiful than another, and discuss how beautiful is perceived from a cognitive, non-technical point of view.
