|Track / Format:||Independent Games Summit|
|Overview:||Professionals from varying disciplines discuss creating games for personal expression, coping, empathy, mental health, and methods used to convey personal messages that speak on deeper topics. As much as games are about mastery of a skill, games can be about mastery of emotions, and addressing issues people might be closed off to. Games can help people cope, heal, and find solace. This set of microtalks is a discussion about using game development practices to make a difference.|
