Arcane Arcade: Games by Kara Stone

Event date: 
Tuesday, December 5, 2017 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm

Charis and Dear Games are proud to present ARCANE ARCADE, a curated collection of games from digital artist Kara Stone (https://karastonesite.com/). We’ll be playing through the games as well as talking live with Kara over Skype about the process and theory behind her game design. A catalogue exploring the themes of Stone’s work will be available for players, along with a collection of zines offering reviews and critiques of other indie game titles, provided by students in the Computational Media and Literature/Media/Communcations departments at Georgia Tech. This is a Charis Circle Founding the Future of Feminism event, and the suggested donation is $5.
