Game psychology sessions added to Develop in Brighton 2014

Three psychology sessions will be held at this year's Develop conference in Brighton 2014 as part of the Evolve day.

Evolve is dedicated to sharing fresh ideas about the newest trends in game development, and the new sessions aim to show how psychology has become an integral part of modern gaming - something has long argued for.

The brains trust

The talks will be kicked off by Dr Linda Kaye, who will hold a session entitled 'Social Psychology and Digital Gaming Experiences – What Can Developers Learn From This Discipline?'.

Alex Meredith will then take to the stage for his talk 'Psychological Researxch in Video Gaming 101', before Berni Good rounds off proceedings with her keynote, 'Using Psychology in an Applied Way in Game Development – and a Glimpse into the Future of Psychology in Gaming'.

All three speakers will stick around for a Q&A session, which will be chaired by Good.

Evolve will take place on Tuesday 8 July, with the rest of the conference continuing on July 9 - 10.

What do you call someone who has an unhealthy obsession with video games and Sean Bean? That'd be a 'Chris Kerr'. Chris is one of those deluded souls who actually believes that one day Sean Bean will survive a movie. Poor guy.
