Before the festival started, we found out that The Migrant Trail was nominated for a Games for Change Award in the Most Significant Impact category. We were thrilled to be one of three nominees in the category, especially because the other games, Mission U.S.: A Cheyenne Odyssey and Start the Talk, were both so excellent.
The Migrant Trail was highlighted in the games arcade all week and drew enthusiastic praise and discussion from players and designers.
GM’s Mattia Romeo also gave a talk with our Migrant Trail collaborator, the documentary filmmaker Marco Williams. Their talk, Walking with Death, explored the ways in which death pervaded the narrative, visuals and game mechanics of the game.
