Creating games is a difficult task, but your chances of delivering a successful game can be greatly increased if a UX Research process is implemented. This talk will explore ten methods that help improve the player experience of your game at all stages of the development lifecycle - concept, design, production, and soft/post-launch. When combined, they help to ensure that players find your game understandable, usable, and ultimately, enjoyable.
