|Session Name:||Game Design Beyond Screens and Joysticks|
|Speaker(s):||Tatiana Vilela dos Santos|
|Track / Format:||Design|
|Overview:||Keyboards, mice and twin stick pads constitute an overwhelming majority of game controlling devices, while displays and speakers monopolize the rendering ones. Despite its obvious economic and ergonomic virtues, the standardization of physical interfaces closes creative doors and conceals a whole field of possibilities. Beyond screens and joysticks lies a world begging to be explored. There is a marginal but increasing number of games that forges ahead and breaks new ground in various fields from arcades to the ALT CTRL movement, escape rooms and new technologies based games. This talk will call into question the part of the game experience that is happening in the physical space, often taken for granted because based on generic devices and then attempt to chart this new territory with a UX design compass and Human-Machine Interaction's tools.|
