While there is no recipe for crafting successful video games, there are specific ingredients that we can rely on and a specific process that can guide developers along the way. The ingredients come from our understanding of the human brain. The process comes from the scientific approach and from design thinking. Considering them both allows developers to adopt a user experience (UX) mindset for their project, empowering them to accomplish their goals faster and more efficiently.
