Interactive Games for Legal Services

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Building on a year-long TIG project to create a “serious game” to help self-represented parties navigate the very real challenges of going to court on their own, our session will introduce you to the new game called RePresent. We will talk about the co-design process with our stakeholders, show you the underlying structure of how the game was built, introduce you to the Mad Science authoring system, and guide you through exercises that will allow you to modify the game for use in your jurisdiction. You will leave this interactive session with a basic understanding of how to use the Mad Science “scripter” to modify the game, or to even create an entirely new game of your own.
