‘Fortnite’ is one of the most successful video games in history, and its success both fascinates and confuses many people who have made efforts to account for how a game could become such a phenomenon so quickly. As the former Director of User Experience at Epic Games, where Celia worked on Fortnite from 2013 to late 2017, she will through the lens of UX share the different steps taken by the ‘Fortnite’ team in building what would later become the phenomenon we now know today.
Celia Hodent is recognized as a leader in the application of user experience and cognitive science in the game industry. Celia holds a Ph.D. in psychology and has over ten years of experience in the development of UX strategy and processes in video game studios.
She currently works as an independent consultant, helping studios increase the likelihood of their games being both engaging and successful.
