Next Thursday, March 24th, the Game Center will be hosting a lecture by Kellee Santiago titled, ‘Challenges in Evoking Unique Emotions in Videogames‘.  Kellee Santiago, co-founder and president of thatgamecompany, is a game designer whose focus is on expanding the range of emotions players can have when exploring game spaces. Along with Jenova Chen, she has assisted in the development of Flow, Flower, and their upcoming title, Journey.

The format for the evening will be a short lecture followed by a general discussion moderated by Game Center Interim Director Frank Lantz. The audience is encouraged to join the discussion. Please bring your questions and ideas about tonight’s topic and overall subject of games in general.

The talk will begin at 7:00 PM at 721 Broadway, Room 006 and is open to students, faculty, and the general public. We welcome everyone, whether your research and teaching is related to games or you are simply curious about this rapidly evolving field. Please come, and feel free to bring any interested NYU colleagues.
