With this presentation, we will discuss the experience of playing the latest Prince of Persia video game along with discussing the experience of designing and developing the game. Sequences in the game will be played and analyzed in detail in order to illustrate and interpret how the various components of the game come together to create a fulfilling playing experience. We will look at the narrative development and game design, highlight overarching themes and gameplay mechanics. We are going to alternate between sharing insights from the playing experience, and then explore the design and development process as well. Well Played 1.0 is a recent book with a group of authors performing similar analyses of various video games. The goal of this book is to help develop and define a literacy of games as well as a sense of their value as an experience. Video games are a complex medium that merits careful interpretation and insightful analysis.
