Dreams of a Life movingly pieces together the true story of thirty-eight year old Joyce Vincent, whose skeleton was discovered in her bedsit three years after she had died. Receiving the commission to make the associated digital element for the project was one of the most challenging and rewarding projects I’ve had a chance to undertake.
You can play Dreams Of Your Life here, or read about the project’s genesis, concept and http://hideandseek.net/2012/03/05/dreams-of-a-game-pt-3/. You can see a video of ‘The Gamification Of Death’, the talk I gave about the project, in the GDC vault.
Dreams Of Your Life was featured at SXSW in 2012, and we redeveloped the experience as the live game Would Anyone Miss You.
