Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Description:
Marcel was sexually abused at the age of 11. He brought his story and experiences to the Lyst Summit Game Jam. Together with a developer, therapists, artists and researchers, Marcel created a game to help victims, like him, to talk about sexual abuse. The game is now succesfully implemented in therapy sessions, where it lowers the barriers to talk about such a tough subject. In this lecture we share our design process, the game and our lessons learned. vildugame.wordpress.com
