Role Playing Real People: Achieving and Leaving Role Immersion in a History Game

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

In this presentation, you will view the variations used in the Minnesota History Center’s Play the Past game to frame and present role plays to the player and will explore the techniques we used to maintain player role immersion in recent prototypes for our current game expansion project. You’ll also hear about the solutions to the following role play questions that we’ve explored during our current game development process. What’s the best way to depict the role-playing “you” in image and text during gameplay to maintain role immersion? Does playing a “real person,” an unspecified “helper,” or present-day “you” best allow players to understand how a person in that role thought and felt? How can we best end the role play and bring “real facts about real people” back into the game and post-game experience?
