By playtesting in the game, we have a couple of incentives:
- Each playtester who submits feedback that is used to revise the game will get a role as a playtester on our credits (with playtesters permission)
- The first fifteen playtesters will receive a 1 day pass for the CTA
Lucidity, a transmedia game, was conceived of and developed by youth in a three-week workshop in July 2012. The Game Changer Chicago (GCC) Design Lab team co-authored and post-produced the game. Lucidity explores social, emotional, and sexual health through a single story that is told through video, photography, comics, websites, digital games, and other media. Please be aware that this game might contain triggering language.
