CANCELLED // Building better Worlds through Game Culturalization - A lecture by Kate Edwards

The event is cancelled in order to curb the spread of the corona virus at an early stage!

With over 30 years of experience in digital media as a geographer and culturalization strategist, and 27+ years in games, Kate Edwards has been involved in the creation of many games, including major titles such as Halo, Fable, Age of Empires, Mass EffectCall of Duty, and many, many others.

She has seen it all when it comes to geopolitical and cultural issues that are often overlooked in content creation and can negatively affect the ability of content to be accepted overseas, and she has seen designers miss opportunities to create more robust worlds that engage the players from diverse cultural backgrounds. Kate will discuss the field of content culturalization and how it can assist game creators with building better game worldsthat account for a wider range of cultural and geopolitical considerations.
