Playtesting: Bulge Lab

In April 2017, I conducted an online survey about the gender identity/practices and gaming habits of men who have sex with men. Through the data I collected, I developed a web-based Alternate Reality Game (ARG), entitled Bulge Lab.

Bulge Lab is an online adventure that takes about 15 minutes to play. The game focuses on gay lived experiences and explores body image and viruses.

I’m really excited about this study!!!
