For the fourth episode of our Podcast I am joined by Senior Consultant Tom Knoll to talk about his work in relation to Learning in Games. Tom chats us through some of the theoretical techniques underpinning this area, as well as some practical applications. We also relate this directly to User Experience and Service design in terms of how gamification can affect the overall customer or user experience.
Last month saw the tragic passing of Nintendo’s much-loved CEO, Satoru Iwata at the age of 55. Here we explore Iwata-san’s impact on the world of videogames and how his legacy will live on through the creation of new games in the future.
Earlier this week I had the great pleasure to attend and represent Spotless as GDC Europe ’14, held in Cologne. This event, which precedes the larger and more well known Gamescom event, brings together games producers, developers and journalists from Europe and further afield for three days of talks, networking and discussions.
