wood & video games



We were asked to make a game installation revolving around the journey of a refugee. We developed Diaspora, a game where up to 4 players group together and and decide to make the dangerous trip across the ocean in search of new hope. The game was developed with KunstZ, a theater group working with refugees.

The wooden arcade was designed together with the game matching the visual style and focussing on accessibility with just 4 buttons to play with. The project is aimed at a younger audience, after finishing the game you can collect a unique card with a poem.

The arcade is touring around different libraries in Antwerp, Belgium.
