|Session Name:||An Introduction to Situational Game Design|
|Company Name(s):||Game On The Rails|
|Track / Format:||Educators Summit|
|Overview:||Situational game design is a new design methodology that focuses on players' internal experiences rather than rules or mechanics. It's particularly useful for analyzing the moment-to-moment play of games that contain periods where the player interacts only minimally with the game's systems. This session provides a brief introduction to the fundamentals of situational design, with an eye toward instructors who might want to use it in a classroom setting.|
