Multiplayer: designing the Other

In multiplayer video games, the rules set for the game environment strongly influence and sometimes even define our relationship with the others.

Every design choice should be based on the kind of interaction we would like to offer players. On the other hand, it should not frustrate the initiative and freedom of the player who is playing a role in the game.

The talk is aimed at studying and problematizing design choices and highlighting linguistic solutions that suggest (without dictating) behaviors.

The talk is addressed to those interested in the linguistic issues that are submitted to a game environment, such as game designers, journalists, promoters of video games culture, and also those who would like to study what is behind a design choice and how it is shaped in order to have a relevant and pleasing way of “experiencing the game”.
