Session Title: Video Game Play and Design: Procedural Directions
Speakers: Dominic Mallinson

Description: So far, game-play design has relied on traditional models, and it has been constrained by old hardware design. New consoles will support procedural simulation and a "drama-on-the-fly" that no other form of entertainment can achieve. For the developer, procedural simulation offers a lighter, more versatile library of assets. The payoff will be a new art form and a more cost-effective method of recreating intelligence, behavior, physics, and modeled environments. This panel presents a snapshot of the current state of procedural simulation and its potential.
