Love Drugs: The Workshop with Brie Code

Love Drugs: The Workshop with Brie Code

PLATFORM presents Love Drugs: The Workshop with Brie Code

Humans have two stress responses: fight-or-flight, involving adrenaline and dopamine, and tend-and-befriend, involving oxytocin or vasopressin and opioids. In the first half of this workshop we’ll discuss what tend-and-befriend is, how it works, how it feels and how to use it in game design. We’ll discuss what it means for game progression and introduce a set of specific mechanics that can leverage it. In the second half, we’ll discuss your games and brainstorm specific ways to integrate tend-and-befriend, considering both the core loop and any potential side content.
