Playtesting doesn’t seem like something we need a lecture for. We have been doing all semester long. But there is a science to it, and we want you to get a little more formal in the final playtesting sessions.
This lecture also addresses issues of accessiblity. While you do not have to support extreme disabilities like deafness or blindness, we do expect all games to be colorblind friendly.To complement this lecture, we recommend the following reading and/or viewing:
- Fullerton, Chapter 9 (Optional)
- Testing Design with Users (Optional)
- Cognitive Walkthrough (Optional)
