UX has considerably grown in the game industry in the past years, yet many misconceptions remain.

In this livestreamed fireside chat session, GDC UX Summit advisors Anouk & Celia propose to take stock of the current state of UX in the game industry, as a mindset and a practice. This session is about celebrating the progress made (such as regarding accessibility or acceptance of UX as a whole) and acknowledging our current challenges.

Session participants will be encouraged to discuss how we can efficiently overcome our current challenges (e.g. inclusion or ethics). The session will end with an introduction to the GDC UX Summit talks of the day, and with a Q&A.
