I was recently invited onto CBC Day 6 to talk about writing and designing video games about mental health, alongside game design professor Sandra Danilovic and hosted by Jonathan Ore.

In the video, we talk about designing fun challenges that still tackle difficult subjects, the use of metaphor in both writing and design, and why we’re seeing more mainstream games about mental health now.
