Alistair Aitcheson: Inspiring Inventive Play with Social Installations

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Alistair Aitcheson is an indie developer who - among other things - attaches buttons to walls and dresses people up in tight spandex to form human game controllers. In his games players make physical contact and are encouraged to perform, to cheat inventively and to collaborate to solve unusual problems. In this talk Alistair takes a deep dive into his projects to explain how game design can encourage social interaction - in particular, how to inspire groups to use their creativity, break the rules and make the game their own.
