Designing Sigridsdotter: A Guide Through a Matriarchy – Eva Wei

How do we design a game that makes complex and subconcious patriarchal structures visible without making it loud, aggressive and in everyone’s face? In this talk, Eva Wei will guide you through the design choices that were made to create the larp Sigridsdotter, a game about everyday life in a modern matriarchy.
