Elizabeth Sampat has worked on blockbuster mobile titles that have been downloaded nearly three billion times; but when she comes home, she crafts personal games that are intimate, revealing, and push the boundaries of the relationship between game and player.
In her spare time, Elizabeth also works to make the industry I love a better place for women and marginalized people. Marie Claire called her “The Game Changer” when they named her one of “20 Women Changing The Ratio” in male-dominated industries.
Elizabeth’s personal work has been covered by the LA Times, Lifehacker, and VICE, and her advocacy and talks have been covered on Polygon, The Guardian, Forbes, and more. Her book Empathy Engines: Design Games That Are Personal, Political, And Profound was released in early 2017.
She is currently working towards her MSc in Organizational Psychology at the University of London, Birkbeck.
