IndieCade’s Keynotes feature presenters and projects at the front end of emerging trends, including participatory theatre, indie eSports, and lessons of failure from game design and beyond.

Participant Agency in Immersive Experiences:

Playing the Accessible Unknown

Immersive experiences are increasingly changing the landscape of entertainment, retail, dining, art and gaming. Immersive creators across a wide spectrum of scales, budgets and mediums are drawing audiences into rich story worlds where each participant is the protagonist of their own experience. These experiences can be powerful, transformative, playful and challenging, and offer the participant a unique opportunity to engage their empathy and sense of autonomy, as well as to rethink their relationship with society’s status quo.

Following a short presentation, Meow Wolf Executive Producer Jenny Weinbloom will be joined by No Proscenium Editor Kathryn Yu to discuss immersive gamification, Meow Wolf’s unique approach to interactive narrative, and the ethics of choose your own adventure storytelling in physical environments.
