A downloadable game

In Stitches is an experimental cooperative card game for 2-6 players. Players work together to build monsters matching cards containing themes.

I made In Stitches over the course of about 2 months for a visual communication and interaction design course. The medium was Posca acrylic paint pens on top of colored cardstock. Because of this, there's really only one copy of the game in existence (though I'm hoping to do some scans of the cards once I have consistent access to a scanner).

My hope was to subvert the tropes and rigid "gaminess" of most card games in order to make a fun, low-pressure, easy to learn experience for a group to enjoy.

Additionally, I hoped to highlight themes of how trans people's bodies are perceived, and - through shock and humor - hopefully build a little understanding.
