Video games are an elaborate deception — a kind of virtual magic trick — that rely on designers' capacity to weave stories, hide clues, leave puzzles, and surprise players.Designers' deceptions are not always in players' best interests however, and game developers often explore the 'grey areas', sometimes unlocking new player experiences, but also unlocking benefits only in their KPIs and bottom lines.
Identifying these deceptive design patterns will help game designers identify, clarify and remove them from the games they create, and should kick-start a broader and more meaningful discussion around deceptive design in games.
This talk is intended for game developers, players, parents, game journalists, and anyone interested in identifying and discussing deceptive design in games.
