River of Justice: Conflict Resolution in a Complex World

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

River of Justice is a 3D immersive game exploring the complexities of global conflict, ethical decision-making, and tensions between justice and forgiveness. Players take on the virtual role of an international agency representative in a fictionalized version of Uganda during the violent reign of the Lord’s Resistance Army. Suddenly finding themselves swept into the conflict, players are faced with ethical dilemmas that have both local and far-reaching consequences.

My work involves the seamless integration of bounded games (where players can fail safely, receive embedded assessment, and have consequentiality in the confines of a fictional world) and larger, flexible 'meta-game' structures and affinity spaces that foster user-driven extensions and adaptations in support of real-world goals ad outcomes.
