NEWS: ANDREA LUCCO BORLERA IN BERLIN!

COLL.EO

ANDREA LUCCO BORLERA’S SURREAL HORSES WAS AMONG THE NOMINEES OF THE 2019 EDITION OF A MAZE., THE 8TH INTERNATIONAL GAMES AND PLAYFUL MEDIA FESTIVAL IN BERLIN. CHECK IT OUT!

A recent graduate of the M.A. in Game Design, Andrea received an M.A. in Cinema, Television and Multimedia from the Università Roma Tre in Rome. In addition to several experimental videos and avant garde short films, Andrea developed Horses, a narrative game inspired by silent, surrealist films, as a final project during the 2017-2018 academic year. Although Horses did not win the first prize, the game was extremely well received by critics and attendees.

Since 2012 A MAZE. has been awarding a prize for The Most Amazing Game. The winner is selected by an interdisciplinary, international and independent jury. In 2019, the international selection committee of about 50 people and the A MAZE. team reviewed 181 submissions from 32 countries. A MAZE 2019 took place in Berlin between April 10–13 2019. Horses was the only Italian game nominated this year.

GAMES USER RESEARCH: HOW TO AVOID THE DESIGNER'S FACEPALM

Designers have to tell in advance how gamers will comprehend, feel and interact with their games in order to craft successful gaming experiences and avoid frustration, doubts or uncertainty. And since user testing is a powerful tool to verify designers' intents and predictions, Games User Research is a powerful ally. In this workshop, I will show how the science of user testing made your favorite games perfect and I will provide attendees with takeaways they can use to improve their own projects.
