Hello everyone! I just published A Playful Place: a catalogue of games for Flying Urban Play.ces.
The initial game I started designing for Trust In Play is called BirdsEyeU and it aims to create a playful experience between players collaborating from two urban levels; the street level and a rooftop! Unfortunately the lockdown and social distancing measures imposed by COVID-19 did not allow me to playtest and finalise my game. Therefore, my initial game design is currently “on hold”.
Fortunately, an open call for submissions inspired me to continue working on the connection between rooftops, balconies and window sills during quarantine. In April 2020, A-Place announced A Confined Place, an interdisciplinary initiative, in the form of a repository that records, envisions and triggers actions and experiences about the sense of place during the period of confinement.
Therefore, this catalogue is a sister project to my initial game for Trust in Play and a project that responds to the call “A Confined Place”.
Watch the trailer of the project here.
Read the catalogue with the games here. The catalogue includes 24 games in 8 different categories. A description and basic rules are given for each game.
Download the catalogue here. (The link to download is also in the description of the publication on issuu above.)
The designer statement is in the catalogue.
I will keep you updated about the progress of my initial game!
