Episode 87: Sanity Points

July 17, 2016 @ 4:45 pm

Sanity Points

Recorded at Metatopia 2015

Presented by Elsa S. Henry, Will Hindmarch, Kelly Osborne & Craig Page.

The worst thing that can happen to you in a horror game is either that you die, or that you lose your mind. In games that focus on a world “gone mad”, how do we support real people living with mental illness through our game development? This panel will focus on revisiting systems like sanity points, and discuss how to address breaks with reality and surviving the very worst that horror has to throw at the world without treating mental illness as a comedic happenstance, or as something to be dismissed.
