What are the worlds we are creating through play? Play gives us permission to explore our collective imagination in experimental ways. What are the narratives in our games? How does play and the way we design it help generate the future? How are we creating rule systems in relationship to our bodies, traumas, histories, and cultures? Exploring the ways that interactive narrative and technology entangle us within tapestry of our world, this talk asks how we can rethink our creative work and lives to generate a world worth living in.
