      This past weekend Tiltfactor brought a bunch of our upcoming tabletop games to the Boston Festival of Indie Games at MIT! Among the 50 tables, the lab was represented at five!

      We brought Bill of Health and Gut Check, two strategy games about the state of the U.S. health care system. Luminaries and Skyline are part of our BIAS project combat gender bias in science. Monarch is our crowd favorite – players play the daughters of the dying queen, vying for the throne.

      We made a big splash at the festival, and players loved the games – many came back to “try out” the games a second time. Check out the pics here!
