“Where my people come from” final game progress
Some people cook on their stoves. Me? I make little armies of Irish men, women and children. I’ll probably finish up with the “black Irish” tomorrow and then make the actual play surface for Where my people come from in the next week or two.
This game is the third in a series of six non-digital games that I’m making as a part of an installation titled The Mechanic is the Message. The design and testing of this game were completed over the winter and spring of 2007/8. Each game in the series uses game mechanics or the game play experience itself to explore difficult topics.
You can see the first playable prototype here.
