In Tune is a game that deals with bodies, their interactions, and giving/withholding consent. Players are asked to negotiate and communicate their own physical boundaries with a partner using skin-to-skin contact as the main controller of the game.
Its goal is to develop players’ skills and ability to navigate consent and physical interactions while hopefully provoking thought about how daily interactions with people and the space around them also involves similarly complicated negotiations. It is also looking to have players examine their own comfort levels and see how thoughtful communication has the potential to shift those levels.
You can listen to our original indie love song, I Love Indie Nostalgia and You, here. It was written by Allison Cole and Jess Marcotte. It was recorded with the assistance of Drew Pascoe (recording) and Michael J. Marcotte (vocals and ukulele).
This game was created by Allison Cole, Jess Rowan Marcotte and Zara Miller. In Tune was an official selection for IndieCade 2015.
