Designing for a Global Audience: Culturalization and Representation in Game Development While game designers often miss opportunities to create more robust worlds that engage the players from diverse cultural backgrounds, there has also been an increased recognition of the importance of inclusivity — and considering the demographics and cultures of our players. In this masterclass, Kate Edwards will help attendees understand the complexities of game culturalization and present a practical framework for how creators can build better game worlds that account for a wider range of cultural and geopolitical considerations, and how your values as a company or individual creator will directly affect your game's ability to find a global audience. This masterclass is limited to 30 participants. YSEALI Game Changers is presented by the U.S. Embassy KL in collaboration with Biji-biji Initiative and Synapze.
