Transformative Costumed Play & Narrative Interfaces

Drawing on practices from theater and the performing arts we are creating games that use costumes to help elicit a sense of character identification and identity transformation from players, and studying the impact that wearing costumes and masks has on socially co-located play and solo play. We look at how the body of the player can be treated as a form of “narrativized interface” through the design of embodied interactions.
