Jesse Schell: Visions of the Gamepocalypse
Reception following in Terrace Lobby
Games perpetually revolutionize computer use toward denser interaction with the human mind. To do that, they perpetually revolutionize themselves. Understanding the next frontiers of the genre is one way to understand where society is going. Game designer Jesse Schell explores the social, cognitive, and technological trends in computer game design and use.
Jesse Schell is the CEO of Schell Games, the author of the authoritative text, The Art of Game Design: a book of lenses and a Professor of Entertainment Technology at Carnegie Mellon, specializing in Game Design. He was formerly the Creative Director of Disney’s Imagineering VR Studio.
