Bringing Among Us into the VR space presented many challenges and opportunities, including keeping players safe and maintaining a healthy community. From developing and sourcing tools to establishing philosophies and standards, a player support initiative had to be built from the ground up for Schell Games' first live multiplayer VR game.

Join Schell Games' Senior Player Support Specialist, Laura Norwicke Hall, to learn about the holistic effort to keep players safe through in-game features, AI-based tools, and human moderation. Hear about what worked, what didn't, and how we've evolved efforts along the way. This presentation is geared to share lessons learned and help others improve player moderation efforts to help all gaming communities thrive.


Attendees will learn about a case study in building player support efforts—including developing guidelines, sourcing tools, growing a team of agents, and forging guiding principles. Attendees will also gain knowledge about AI implementation blending with the importance of human involvement, pitfalls to avoid, and Schell Games' established best practices.

Intended Audience

This is for all developers whose games might include live multiplayer interactions, or those interested in learning more about supporting the health of your gaming community. It is also for those developing player moderation tools or interested in leveraging AI to enhance player safety.
