UTF-404 — THE MAKING

by in

UTF-404 is a new neighborhood in the Culture. During a week-long world-building workshop, Les Arène’s design students were asked to role-play a character and given a set of constraints to work with in order to create their own fictional community. For this event, we made a custom card game allowing students to play more colorful characters and face all sorts of issues to which they had to respond creatively.

Here is an overview of how this workshop went.

 

UTF-404 est un nouveau quartier de la Culture. Pendant un workshop de création d’univers d’une semaine, des élèves de design des Arènes ont été amenés à travailler par le jeu de rôle sur la fondation de leur propre communauté fictive. Pour cet évènement, nous avons conçu un jeu de carte permettant aux étudiants de jouer des personnages hauts en couleurs et de faire face à divers types de problèmes auxquels ils ont du répondre de façon créative.

Voici une vue d’ensemble du déroulement de ce workshop.
