at the 18th Annual IDI Irish Design Awards.
The Grand Prix was awarded to Llaura McGee from Dreamfeel (http://dreamfeel.org/), an emerging video game designer whose game, If Found Please Return, was highly praised by the judges for its interesting and immersive techniques. Dreamfeel won three awards and a commendation in the Irish Design Awards, including an award for best Game Design, a commendation for Collaborative Design, an award for emerging talent and the Grand Prix overall award.
If Found, Please Return is an interactive narrative in which you read the infinitely unfolding diaries of drifter/astronaut Kasio. Erase the things you’ve done, the places you’ve been, the people you knew, and even erase existence itself. This is how it ends.
In 2016 a 15 minute self contained chapter was created and exhibited at EGX Rezzed in London, the AMaze festival in Berlin and State of Play in Dublin.
The IDI Irish Design Awards recognise, celebrate and promote exemplary design vision in Ireland. The event took place in November in Dublin. See http://www.idi-design.ie/awards/
