Raph Koster to Keynote Sense of Play 07

Sense of Play is a one-day symposium and content showcase co-sponsored by the University College for the Creative Arts. The event aims to promote lively debate on the nature of game design: what it means to different people – both inside and outside the industry. Focussing on the creative and cultural dimensions, Sense of Play examines game design as both a discipline and craft, offering different perspectives on its current and future possibilities.

Sense of Play also explores the role of the game designer in an industry which many believe to be in something of a state of flux. Given that game designers are considered to be key to the medium’s creative future, how can we best equip emerging talent to square up to the considerable challenges they face as the industry evolves?

The symposium is followed by a content showcase featuring work from the MA Digital Games Design programme at the University College for the Creative Arts Farnham, joined by students from postgraduate game design related courses from various other institutions.

Sense of Play is free to attend, but pre-registration is required.
