What makes a game good? or bad? or better? Building on the ETC Press books and journal and the success of live sessions, speakers play a select Game for Change Award finalist game for the audience at the festival to help analyze the gameplay experience and open up a discussion with the unique impact games can have. The goal is to help develop and define a literacy of games as well as a sense of their value as an experience. These sessions are not a part of the selection and jurying of the festival game entries, instead they are purely to inspire discussion amongst festival attendees.

In this session, Nick Fortugno will share his analysis and experience of what makes Papers, Please, one of the nominees for a Games for Change Award in the Best Gameplay and Most Innovative catgories, an effective game for change.
