The British Science Festival is Europe’s longest standing science festival, traveling to a different place in the United Kingdom each year. For 2017, Brighton University and the University of Sussex were selected as hosts for the festival.

My Fireflygame was accepted into the festival. I ran it over two days at the Brighton Museum as part of the Creative Technology Research programme.

The Fireflygame is a research project that investigates human-to-human interaction mediated by technology. It challenges players to develop new game rules and analyze the effect of the gameplay and strategy. The game exposes that is hard to design for play and fun.
