Description

Making a successful video game is very difficult. The Gamer’s Brain: How Neuroscience and UX Can Impact Video Game Design (PDF) will help you overcome many related problems. Even games that are successful at launch may fail to engage and retain players in the long term due to issues with the user experience (UX) that they are delivering. The game user experience accounts for the whole experience players have with a video game, from 1st hearing about it to progressing in the game and navigating menus. UX as a discipline offers guidelines to assist developers in creating the best experience they want to deliver, shipping much higher quality games (whether it is an AAA game, indie game, or “serious game”), and meeting their business goals while staying true to their artistic and design intent.

In a nutshell, UX is about understanding the human gamer’s brain: understanding human capabilities and limitations to anticipate how a game will be perceived, how players will interact with it, the emotions it will elicit, and how engaging the experience will be. This ebook, The Gamer’s Brain: How Neuroscience and UX Can Impact Video Game Design PDF is designed to equip readers of all levels, from professionals to students, with neuroscience knowledge and user experience methodologies and guidelines. These insights will help readers identify the ingredients for successful and engaging video games, empowering them to develop their own unique game recipe much more efficiently, while providing a better experience for their audience.
