I coded the game engine, and contributed a lot to the design of the gameplay, and lead the group in some improvised music and sound effect exercises. The game is more like an interactive art gallery than a traditional game, but there are puzzles to solve and narrative threads to string together.

My thanks to Dione McGuire, Elizabeth Wright, Tom Sarsons, Melvin Kwan, Sarah Ahmed, and Louis Ducsharm for the wonderful weekend.
