Tend and Befriend: The Power of Community-Focused Games in a Socially-Isolated World
Tuesday, Nov 1st at 7pm PT
In the second week of March, 2020, much of the world locked down. In the third week of March, 2020, the game “Animal Crossing” was released. In the two years that followed, people of all ages and skill levels turned to games like this one, seeking a sense of stability and community in a deeply destabilized and isolated world. We will discuss the social impact of these “tend and befriend” style games, and discuss how their lessons can be carried forward as we discover our “new normal.”
