Games that cure
Psychology major with clinical experience, Skyrim fanatic and senior game writer in Gamesture (Cracow based developer and creator of Questland). A firm believer in games ability to change mankind (for the better) and vast, sandbox RPGs.
In my speech, I focus on the incredible therapeutic power video games have. I focus on regular, off-the-shelf games, that most of us play and the healing potential they possess. I discuss numerous scientific research, examples of treatment, gamers’ testimonies as well as my personal experience in this subject.
All that, because I believe that game designers need to hear more about the impact they actually can have on peoples’ lives and on how powerful their work can be.
