Welcome to PRACTICE: Game Design in Detail. Where game designers of every stripe butt heads, share ideas, and break bread together.
PRACTICE is an annual event that takes a close look at the concrete challenges of game design, bridging dialog across industries. Where else can a console developer discuss level design with a tabletop RPG writer? Or an iPhone puzzle creator debate economy balancing with a collectable card game designer? Or a professional sports official share secrets with an experimental indie game artist? No other conference brings together such a diverse group of game designers for high-level dialog.
We explore the day-to-day, nuts and bolts practice of game design – where the rubber of design ideas and methods meets the road of meaningful, playable games. Join us for three days of lectures and panels, workshops and discussions, mixed with plenty of game-playing and socializing.
