This course explores the application of psychology and theories of motivation to the design and prototyping of games. Archetypes, symbols and myths are living containers of collective memory which are still actively functional in our play and gaming experiences. They also appear unconsciously within the stories we tell, from oral legends to myths & tales, from cinema to literature. Course is based on interdisciplinary comparative approach and explores the basic concepts, theories and findings of psychology including archetypal perspective, perception, attention, and memory, in the context of games.
