GameHorizon, the collaborative network for North East games companies, hosted a forum to explore the link between real life and games. With the advent of next generation consoles, real time software, and artificial intelligence, developers are now able to produce games that are closer to real life experiences than ever before. As games more closely mimic life, gamers are increasingly demanding games have an emotional as well as technical dimension. This seminar and networking event looked into the methods of building emotion into games, creating an immersive experience for gamers.
