3pm: Killer games with no killing: How do you make a non-violent hit?

Many of the most popular games on the market centre around combat and violence, but (as you'll often discover on the show floor of any EGX Rezzed) there are alternative ways to entertain gamers for hours on end. Which core game loops can be as satisfying scoring that perfect headshot? Which genres can be expanded beyond tasking players with Killing All Of The Things? This topic will be discussed in a panel featuring Ustwo Games CEO Maria Sayans, Aardman's senior producer George Rowe, Nyamyam co-founder Jennifer Schneidereit and Quantum Soup Studios' managing director Chris Payne. The panel will be moderated by GamesIndustry.biz's UK Editor James Batchelor.
