The 11th annual festival featured luminaries from throughout the industry, with the keynote speaker That Game Company's Jenova Chen. Chen's talk, entitled "Blank Canvas: Designing A New Era Of Emotional Storytelling Through Games", highlighted the differences in the emotions players can feel in different gameplay arenas, and how those emotional reactions guided, and continue to guide, he and his team as they develop games in an evolving world.
