Video: Matching the world to the player with procedural regeneration

In this 2018 GDC talk game designer Heather Robertson introduces the concept of procedural regeneration — that is, the concept of dynamically altering the world space of a game to fit the play style of its play.

It was a fascinating talk about a novel way of designing games, and now you can watch it for free on the official GDC YouTube channel!

In addition to this presentation, the GDC Vault and its accompanying YouTube channel offers numerous other free videos, audio recordings, and slides from many of the recent Game Developers Conference events, and the service offers even more members-only content for GDC Vault subscribers.

Those who purchased All Access passes to recent events like GDC or VRDC already have full access to GDC Vault, and interested parties can apply for the individual subscription via a GDC Vault subscription page. Group subscriptions are also available: game-related schools and development studios who sign up for GDC Vault Studio Subscriptions can receive access for their entire office or company by contacting staff via the GDC Vault group subscription page.
