|Session Name:||Are We There Yet? Making Empathy Matter|
|Company Name(s):||Acting for Animators|
|Track / Format:||Visual Arts|
|Overview:||It is not enough to merely endow characters with the illusion of emotion. Emotion is like room tone.

In this talk, Ed Hooks will explain the mechanisms of emotion and why it is so difficult for games to make them meaningful to the player.|
