For my final project I want to make an interactive game around the concept of privilege.
I want to focus on the lack of realization of privilege: The more we have it, the less we see it. I am inspired by Nicky Case’s work on meaningful games, especially the game, Parable of Polygons that talks about neighborhood segregation and and the interactive narrative Neurotic Neurons that talks about understanding anxiety. I am also inspired by Mary Flanagan’s writing on Criticial Play.
I spent a lot of the week thinking about privilege and what asking people what they thought about equality and privilege in the society. I am trying to structure a narrative around what I want to portray about privilege.
