Susana Ruiz, artist/video game designer and Co-founder of Take Action Games presented at the Euphrat Museum of Art in Cupertino California. The exhibit was up for two months along with several other digital artists and independent game developers. During a recent visit to Silicon Valley De-Bug we took advantage of the opportunity to ask her some questions about the significance of her work and her future projects.
Take Action Games is a game design studio specializing in casual games for change. The goal of Take Action Games is to address content of social and political significance via innovative game design that traverses the intersections of computational art, narrative, journalism, activism, ethics, history and documentary. The TAG team strives to create interactive experiences that speak of critical issues with an approach that prioritizes subject-matter research and emotionality, in the hopes of expanding the expressive power of games and thereby engaging a far-reaching audience of casual and non-gamers.
