These games were made for a creative practice project exploring personhood, personal geography and memory. The games are a creative component of my PhD research on personal vignette games.
Each game can be played in under 5 minutes, with a standard mouse and keyboard. Any comments you choose to leave may be used to inform a personal critical reflection on the works, and contribute to a small write-up of player/community experiences playing and sharing personal vignettes. Nothing but the comments will be recorded, stored or used in any way - you can play the games without commenting, or to talk about them elsewhere, without being involved in the study.
