Well Played: That Dragon, Cancer

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What makes a game good? Or bad? Or better? Building on the ETC Press books and journal and the success of live sessions, NICK FORTUGNO  will play a That Dragon Cancer to help analyze the gameplay experience and open up a discussion about the unique 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. These sessions are not a part of the selection and jurying of the festival game entries, instead they are purely to inspire discussion amongst festival attendees.
