The game is designed to address motivational aspects of aliteracy, a focus of Simone's MFA research, by leveraging co-design and collage techniques to encourage social storytelling. The goal of the conference is to highlight innovative research and approaches in the fields of game design, digital and virtual art, entertainment hardware, serious games and game-based learning, and other related disciplines.
