Crystal City

Game Developer, Art Designer, Fabricator

Summer 2019

Crystal City is set in a fantasy world to encourage players to transfer over into real-life race relations and increase players’ empathy.Players experience a range of more/less obvious facets of discrimination ranging from institutionalized racism to micro-agressions.

Players build a character at the beginning of the game, with a randomly assigned race. The player’s race affects the probability of attaining certain starting character stats. After this phase, players go around the table rolling a die/dice, experiencing events, and making decisions to advance along the path toward a final goal of entering the "Crystal City". These events are also affected by the player’s race.
