• The Game Narrative Lab at Kennesaw State UniversityWinner of the Critical Thinking Game Design Challenge

    The Game Narrative Lab Creates A NEW Game: Corporation Inc.
    Corporation Inc. puts the players into the shoes of Maria Villalobos, a 25-year-old Honduran native who comes to the United States to work at Corporation Incorporated as their new hiring manager in their ‘revitalization program’. Maria is put on a one-week trial in which she must review 25 applicants daily while judging their qualifications and skillsets. In addition to working against a ticking clock, she has to exercise critical thinking while navigating a skeptical boss, a lousy friend, and the discrimination most immigrants face upon their arrival to America. It’s up to the player how they navigate their first week at Corporation Incorporated.
