Game For Thought

Introducing ‘Game for Thought’ – DAE’s newest Livestream series tackling ethically-relevant topics in the industry. Streaming monthly from our campus The Level, we’ll critically evaluate topics at the intersection of gaming and social ethics. We’ll explore the impacts and implications of industry developments while reflecting upon our responsibilities as creators, addressing the capacity of gaming to transcend its virtual reality. How does the gaming world affect the contemporary world beyond the screens – and vice versa?

On Thursday, December 17th from 20:00-21:30, join us via Twitch for our second-ever ‘Game for Thought’ stream surrounding the following topic: ‘Discrimination and Representation in Games’. Where does the responsibility lie in terms of inclusion and equity within the industry – and within games themselves? How does representation (or the lack thereof) impact gameplay, while perhaps molding our understandings of identity? In which ways does discrimination show its face – and what can be done to provide for a more inclusive gaming environment?

During a 90-minute stream, you’ll have the opportunity to hear from topical experts and lecturers in the field – and you’ll be able to let your own voice be heard during a panel discussion and audience Q&A. Submit your questions here:
