Well Played: Walden, a Game

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

What makes a game good? or bad? or better? Building on the Well Played books and journal and the success of lives sessions, we will explore a game at the festival to help analyze the gameplay experience and open up a discussion around the unique positive social impact games can have. The goal is to help develop and define a literacy of games as well as a sense of their value as an experience.
