Digital, analog. One player, multi-player. Humans love games. We may not realize how much a part of our lives they are, and how much Baltimore is a hub for creating games. Jonathan Moriarty, chair of a non-profit for developers, tells us about Baltimore’s booming game industry, and what supports it. MICA has a game designer-in-residence. This year it’s Lishan AZ, who blends real life and digital in a project that explores the life of journalist Ida B. Wells. And the head of MICA’s game-design program, Jason Corace, tells us how play builds empathy.
