Interlingual Mystery Game

Mar 8, 2023

3:30pm – 5:00pm CT

We are bringing to you a rare opportunity to try our Interlingual Mystery Game. Created by a deaf game developer and a non-deaf media director, this unique game has been gaining popularity in Japan. It provides a dynamic, team-building experience through non-verbal communication. Participants work together to solve puzzles, overcoming language barriers such as sign/spoken language or English/Japanese. This gives them a chance to not only learn how to create puzzles, but also to gain insight on the nature of true universal communication.
