Values-driven Game Design: The Making of Alba: a Wildlife Adventure

We’ll hike through the design process of Alba: a Wildlife Adventure from the idea generation to prototyping, creating vertical slice levels, game mechanics, narrative design… all the way up to the game’s release. We’ll have special attention to all the challenges the game presented and the many changes the team had to make to the game along the way, in an effort to merge fun and engaging gameplay with the real life values and issues of the game’s core identity.
