On Wednesday 12th February, the None in Three team in the UK presented a mid-project update on our research and game development as part of the University of Huddersfield’s Public Lecture series.
Our lecture was jointly presented by Gill Kirkman, UK Country Director, and Helen Smailes, Games Team Manager.
Gill spoke about the outcomes of our qualitative research. This included a summary of key themes identified through our work with both survivors and perpetrators of intimate partner violence. These themes have been incorporated into the educational video game we are developing for young people in the UK.
Helen gave an update on progress with our game development for the UK. We have now completed motion capture with our young actors, and are in the process of incorporating this footage and these movements into the game. Helen also spoke about the ‘good games’ principles which underpin the work of None in Three.
We were delighted with the public response to our lecture. The audience included professionals working in fields relating to our work, such as social work and the police, as well as individuals who had a personal interest in the work of None in Three.
We received some very positive feedback about our presentation and the evening ended with a lively Q&A session.
