Psychology is in everything we experience as people and it frames how we view the world. Design in any field relies on this framing in creating user-experiences. This is even more true in the application of gaming for the storytelling medium and of video games for education as well as pleasure.


The influence of the mind, the manipulation of choice, and the control of expectation are all critical aspects in designing meaningful player experiences. I have learned to believe in a very player-centric approach to design. Once a product is made, its message is only as good as what the player perceives.
