Talk description

This talk is about how we design believable social spaces in Hitman levels. The core gameplay loop of the Hitman franchise is based on the concepts of ‘social stealth’ and ‘freedom of approach’. These concepts dictate how the levels are designed and this talk will aim to illuminate how.
