The debut experience Keepsake will be available at a launch event on Friday 17th January at Bar SK in Melbourne, raising funds for Foodbank Victoria to support families affected by the bushfire crisis.
Keepsake explores grief and loss, offering a playful space to reflect on meaning and memories. Players can create a “keepsake” by curating items in a box or container representing a particular person, relationship or place that is meaningful to them – whether they are present, or now in the past.
This year we’ll be exploring games inspired by our own experiences and values. We have all experienced loss, or connected with mortality in some way in 2019 – Keepsake is a small experience that explores how gratitude and joy can be a part of losing someone, and the importance of remembering these people who’ve shaped our lives.
We’ve been quietly working on understanding stress and anxiety and how we might be able to change interactive experiences to help and not harm.
We’ll announce the themes of the remaining titles in The Emotions Collection in the coming weeks.
Each experiment will be available fortnightly for the public, as well as digitally via the Lumiverse for a limited time. All public The Emotions Collection experience events will support organisations and charities assisting the ongoing Australian bush fire crisis.
To keep up with us as we explore emotions and well-being through games, as well as personal access to Keepsake and other titles in The Emotions Collection, join the Lumiverse.
For those that can’t attend the Keepsake launch event in Melbourne, a donation can be made to Foodbank Victoria directly here.
Hope to see you soon <3
