pgi4-samSamantha McBeth – Lights Out!

For hatchling sea turtles, artificial light is a killer. Instinct drives them from their nests on beaches towards the brightest horizon, ideally the waterline on an undeveloped coast.

But the bright lights of coastal development—streetlamps, illuminated parking lots, and buildings—can lure newly-hatched baby turtles towards artificial light sources. As hatchlings turn away from the sea to cross into streets and parking lots, they are invariably killed. Shut the lights, save the turtles!

Sydney’s Epic Adventure – Sydney Warshaw
Sydney’s Epic Adventure is a game about my experience playing games. The aesthetic is reminiscent of the computer games I played in the 90’s and early 2000’s such as Hello Kitty World, American Girl Dress Designer and Neopets. Stemming from my love of paper dolls, character creation has always been my favorite part of games. I wanted to make a game focused on that. However, the fact that the character is never permitted to play the “real” game is designed as a commentary on the kinds of games marketed towards women vs. men, and on the idea of male and female “spaces” that are created in games.
