WAITING ROOM, 2021 

Platform: Windows
Software:  RPG Maker MV

Play Here: Waiting Room


This game was made with Kendle White under the team name Dream City.
Waiting Room is an RPG game focused on exploration and curiosity. You wander aimlessly from room to room, trying to navigate and understand the landscape presented to you. It seems like these places have a rich history, but why is no one willing to tell it?

This game was built as a companion piece to a research paper I was writing on wandering and queer experiences in the RPG Maker game Yume Nikki. I was hoping to understand more about how games made in RPG Maker utilize space and maps as stages for their stories to take place on.
