Session Name:

Improving Design on 'Dauntless' through Community Engagement


Kristen has interacted extensively with game communities in her time as a developer. In this talk, she will discuss the opportunities and challenges of interacting directly with players as a designer. She will cover how to get involved, the benefits that a designer can get from their players being a part of the conversation, and the risks of the process. Through this, you'll become better at reading your player's needs, improving your own designs, and turning community members into advocates for your game.
