Wellcome’s Toni Brasting is hosting a discussion with several games studios on creating games which tackle serious topics. This session looks closely at some of the ways games developers can give a different perspective to difficult areas like mental health, societal breakdown and grief to create compelling games. It will also discuss the opportunity games provide to start conversations with players to create awareness and debate on challenging subjects.
This session aims to give developers ideas about how to approach tough topics and ensure they are authentically portrayed within their game. People attending should come away with renewed ambition in creating challenging and exciting games tackling issues they are passionate about.
