Pervasive Media Studio resident Claire Morwood and Chella Ramanan of 3-Fold Games will be introducing their recently released video game, Before I Forget. Before I Forget is a short narrative exploration about a woman suffering from early-onset dementia. In this talk, Claire and Chella will discuss their design process and the challenges they encountered while creating the game and the research they undertook around the subject of dementia.
Before I Forget has had a great press reception and positive feedback from players, showing that the game has been able to open up new conversations about dementia and the portrayal of diverse narratives in video games. 3-Fold Games will also be partnering with Alzheimer’s Research UK around the time of World Alzheimer’s Day in order to raise further awareness for both the game and the charity.
Join us on Fri 14th August, 13:00-14:00 for the talk and to take part in the discussion afterwards.
