My first step in creating the game was research and interviewing. This was my favourite part of the project. It was absolutely amazing!
I managed to find 10 individuals to interview. And doing those interviews was probably one of the most incredible experiences of my life so far. I found people I related to on a level I’d never before experienced. It was the first time that a lot of my experiences and behaviours didn’t feel unique to me. I liked that; it meant I wasn’t the only one. Thank you to the interviewees; your involvement meant more to me than it just being for a game.
I spread out the interviews and research over the month of November. Most of the research had already been done months previously, so the stage ended up mostly just being the interviews.
