The one-day UX Summit will cover all the facets of the user experience discipline in the video game industry. UX is about helping make sure the design and business intent of your game is the one ultimately experienced by your target audience and has become a key component of many game development teams. It does so by using knowledge from cognitive science, psychology, and by applying user research methodology. Attendees of the summit will learn UX strategy, design, and research best practices in how to remove unnecessary barriers to the enjoyment of their game, how to increase its overall quality, and increase the likelihood that it will create and sustain engagement.
