GameCity: Adventures in Privacy

This October, VOME issued a challenge to a select group of gamers at GameCity – the world’s most interesting festival celebrating all things gaming. Supported by noted games for social good designers Minkette and Matt Watkins, VOME asked 8 intrepid participants to spend a couple of days designing and developing a game that promoted understanding of online privacy practices. We wanted to see what these gamers and games designers might come up with, when challenged to find a way to illustrate the research principles that helped David Barnard-Wills come up with Privacy, a card game.

Here’s a  film StrangeStorm made for us, explaining what we got up to.
