Arcade 11 presents games and playful media made by members of the Technoculture, Art, and Games (TAG) Research Centre at Concordia University. As part of the 2019 event, Mariko MacDonald and Michael Iantorno hosted interviews with various game developers, makers, and playtesters.
Jess Marcotte is a queer nonbinary game designer, writer, intersectional feminist, and PhD student at Concordia University who has worked on games such as In Tune: a game about navigating consent, rustle your leaves to me softly, The Truly Terrific Traveling Troubleshooter, and transgalactica: A Tune Your Own Adventure. We spoke with Jess about their latest game, TRACES.
