    It's a world of clones, of derivative ideas, of repackaging games in genres. It can be hard to be creative. And all too often, creativity is treated as a magical talent that few have, when it's actually a skill that anyone can learn and that improves with practice! Come learn what science tells us about creativity, and practical straightforward steps that any game designer or developer can make use of in order to get more creative. We'll actually try these things out in the talk, and I promise every attendee will leave with a brand-new game idea, never before seen.

    Takeaway

    Attendees will learn what "creativity" is currently thought to be, and specific tools and tricks for making their games more creative. We'll even try to be creative during the actual talk!
