Abstract

1906 is a serious first-person exploration game designed to increase the salience of a user's own mortality while providing an engaging rendition of historical events. The game is set in San Francisco during the Great Earthquake and Fire Disaster of 1906, one of the most devastating natural disasters of our nation's history. Players will have to interact with virtual citizens as well as try to keep their virtual self alive. Using its unique ambience and setting, 1906 allows players to experience life in the aftermath of one of America's greatest natural disasters.
