by Casper Harteveld
In the midst of a pandemic that has exceeded a staggering toll of 200,000 deaths in the United States alone, and has coincided with wildfires, hurricanes, and widespread protests for racial justice, it can be difficult to look ahead and imagine what the world might look like after 2020.
Two researchers from Northeastern’s College of Arts, Media and Design, think game design may help us gauge people’s views of the post-pandemic world.
Casper Harteveld and Giovanni Troiano, are in the middle of an ongoing study that fuses elements of game design and storytelling to allow for a wide range of answers.
