ABOUT THE TALK:
Daybreak is a cooperative board game about stopping climate change. Co-designed by Matt Leacock (the designer of Pandemic) and Matteo Menapace (tabletop and live games designer), published by CMYK.
In this talk Menapace will share prototypes from the creative process and discuss how he and Leacock set out to design a game of speculative optimism, in which players cooperate to build an equitably decarbonized future, where all of us can not just survive, but thrive.
