Half: Discussion with LlamaDownUnder and Kakujo
This latest episode of Intelligame Club is a roundtable discussion about the game Half, by Emma Kidwell. If you haven’t already gotten to listen to the our developer interview, feel free to jump into that first to gain some insight as to what inspired Emma to create Half as well as hear her reflect on the process of taking lived experiences and communicating them through the medium of games. This week I was joined by Intelligame moderator, Llama, and Brian, a Twitch and Youtube content creator who has recently written and published his first children’s book. The three of us dove into discussing this topic and game wholeheartedly, as all three of us are biracial and grew up with experiences similar to Emma’s. What becomes apparent through our discussion is not only what poignant game Emma has created… but that the act of sharing experiences with those who can empathize is a powerful and, in many ways, therapeutic experience. ---------- Three ways to keep up on Intelligame: 1.
