Event description

Description

Now in its second year, Develop:Research aims to demonstrate the value of University research and development (R&D) to the games industry. It is sponsored by Connected Futures, one of the University of Brighton’s five research and enterprise themes, and convened by Professor Karen Cham. Their Connected Futures research focuses on the value of rapid contemporary changes in the interactions between people, material objects and digital media worlds. They harness innovation to build trust in digital infrastructures and collaborate with industry to turn ideas into reality and advance our connected lives.

This year, sessions will be following these "Games for Good" thematics:

  • Games for Good - Sustaining the future of the games industry. What are the technological, aesthetic and cultural developments to be aware of in order to ensure the continued success of games in the immersive experience economy? What new partnerships are made possible, necessary, even vital to ensure the continuation of this creative sphere? What fields of artistry and innovation do contemporary developers draw upon in order to invigorate the industry?

  • Games for Good - How can academic research and engagement enable games, games culture and the games industry to 'clean up' the toxic image it has as a space of employment, an immature art form and as an inclusive leisure activity? To what extent might researchers positively intervene in controversies surrounding game titles, cultures and practices? In what ways can criticism contribute to the creation of ethical games and ethical gaming?

  • Games for Good – An opportunity to showcase the leading edge of academic research deploying the immersive and interactive potentials of games to promote innovation in relation to health, social engagement, political awareness or educational benefits.
