Videogame made in Unity, 3D modeling made in Blender. 2018.

SOLA is a video game that embodies the climate of tension, discomfort and fear that can be experienced while walking alone at night in cities where gender-based violence is embedded in everyday life. SOLA challenges the usual understanding of games as a source for entertainment. It builds on the concept of play to explore a video game as an instrument for conceptual thinking and a tool to work through social issues. How do we get back home? Do we walk or take a cab? Do we take the short cut, or the better- lit path? Do we let someone know that we are on our way just in case we never arrive?
