Spatial communication in level design. How your level communicates ideas to a player and how to take control of what it is saying.

Wednesday 4th November: 13.00 - 13.30

20 level design techniques that communicate ideas to your players. Every decision you make when building your level will tell the player something. From locked doors and broken drain pipes to a fallen tree or a rocky outcrop lodged into the side of a hill. These all form a dialogue that the player has with the level as they play, and if used in the right way can lead the player through a space in the exact way that you intended. This talk breaks down an example level and highlights 20 level design techniques that help you take control of what your level is communicating to the player.
