Driving Your Players Mad: an RPG workshop
Games don't have to be fun! A workshop about communicating experiences through the choices you offer (or don't) in role playing games
Saturday 10.02.24. 10–11.15am. £5 (PWYC tickets available). Book via Eventbrite
Games don’t have to be fun. In this workshop we’ll look at how you can communicate about your own experiences by changing how you present choices in your games. What happens when choices are boring or frustrating? What if some choices are easier than others? We’ll look at a number of examples from different media, including books, zines and video games and discuss how they make their players feel, and then how you might design choices to mimic your own experiences.
