My Choice

My Choice is an interactive "Choose Your Own Adventure" game that brings awareness to intersectional feminism by allowing the user to experience everyday prejudices firsthand. The user can make choices as their character, and see how their insignificant personal choices such as answering a question in a computer science class can lead to comments such as "wow, you're smart for a pretty girl". Many people see feminism as an overwhelming and distant problem, so with our game, we attempt to make these issues more relatable.

"I LOVED working with my team on this project. There were definitely times when we disagreed on which direction the game should go, but we are all very proud of the finished product and I know it wouldn't have gotten here if it weren't for all of our different ideas."
