DeMOS | The game goes to Leipzig!
Urbandig project tried out the outcomes of an extensive, but very creative process:
A performative game that intends to make collective reflecting and decision making, much more fun and effective!
Point of departure was Labour Game jam, while Art Games Game Jam followed - both organised by Goethe Institute Athens. We continued with several months of work and our first playtesting in a closed circle - and now it was about time to open up!
Next station? Leipzig!
In October 2018, the 3rd playtesting of the developed version of the game was successfully organized, adressing participants from Germany, Syria and Greece. Game master was Odysseas Velentzas.
Designed in a way that adapts every city, while prioritizing the notion of "dweller", "DeMOS_the game" intends to create the conditions under which diverse groups may find an easier path towards consensus.
Can't wait for next time!
