|Session Name:||The Schema is (Still) Mightier than the Sword: How Cognition Predicts Player Spatial Coding Systems|
|Company Name(s):||Digipen Institute of Technology|
|Track / Format:||UX Summit|
|Overview:||Understanding the science of player spatial coding behavior holds a potential wealth of information for game designers. Research in this area illustrates how players learn to navigate game environments through spatial mapping schemas, mental rotation, and feature detection activation for attention-grabbing stimuli. This talk demonstrates how these kinds of spatial coding schemas can be utilized to craft more nuanced approaches to user experiences in game design. This talk is a continuation or "Part 2" from last year's GDC UX Summit talk, "The Schema is Mightier than the Sword" and provides attendees ways to "test" their own cognitive spatial coding schemas.|
