Making Silence / Breaking Silence
By Tayler Stokes

A freeform game about domestic violence. This game intends to demonstrate the risks and challenges a victim of domestic violence faces while considering leaving their abuser. This game follows a long-term committed intimate relationship as the intensity of abuse mounts.

Emotional, physical, and sexual violence will be represented in abstraction through various techniques. Additionally, play will almost certainly reference acts and threats of assault, coercion, and manipulation, and may go so far as to reference femicide and rape.

These are extremely serious subjects. It is of paramount importance that all players are fully informed before play commences.

For 4 participants and a facilitator. Accepted to the Stockholm Scenario Festival 2015

Ugly Girl
By Jay Sylvano

Would you undergo radical physical transformation for the sake of others and how they treat you?

This game means to highlight some of the many significant and veiled cruelties faced by women who do not meet conventional beauty standards within society, the manner in which society sexualizes and consumes the women who do, and the ways in which women are pitted against each other to gain recognition from others based on their appearance.

A player-run larp for 4 participants designed for the Golden Cobra Game Challenge 2015.
