Attendees to this talk will leave with a better understanding of the history of games that have been making positive social impacts - particularly within the commercial and consumer market. There will be discussion of what considerations needs to be taken into account when developing such games, key philosophies that help set the game's course, and where the industry is heading within this important category. Alan's long history in gaming will allow for insightful and amusing anecdotes about what it's like going from making AAA blockbusters to AA and indie games that aim to make people stop and consider the world around them and their place within it.
