  • Have you ever wondered what makes a game go viral?
  • Which features of your products improve engagement?
  • How would you redesign Pac-Man?

Nicole Lazzaro of XEODesign is guiding a day-long workshop on The Power of Play. She'll walk us through The Four Keys to Fun, lead hands-on exercises in Player Experience Design, and give you an opportunity to work on bringing fun to your own outstanding projects.

Will Wright, Creator of The Sims called Nicole's GDC talk on The Four Keys to Fun the "Most informative talk at GDC.
Every designer should learn how to read this language."

This workshop is ideal for interaction designers, game developers, community & product managers, and instructional designers.
