#G4C12: Case Study: The End

329 views

Published on

According to research, over two thirds of UK teens are either agnostic or atheist. Based on the hypothesis that a person’s understanding of death is guided by their religion, the absence of one suggests that the majority of teens are largely unsupported when trying to make sense of it.
The End is a free, online web-game commissioned by Channel 4 Education, to ‘make death easier’. It is a game of self-discovery of 14-19 year olds which integrates strategy, puzzles and philosophical questions into a world which explores a range of commonly (or less commonly) held views about death, philosophy and science.
The micro-talk explains the approach Preloaded took to designing a game about death as well as presenting insight into the player’s views on mortality, generated from the equivalent of 11+ years of non-stop gaming.
