Research Statement

The original Snap Escape was based on the research of Kevin Driscoll, a former Research Assistant at MIT and now a PhD student at the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at the University of Southern California. His research goal was to create a multiplayer game that can be played simultaneously by players in different time zones to illustrate how location can affect gameplay, encouraging players to get away from the computer and share their lived experiences.

Snap Escape: The Epic Swing is the culmination of 2 previous award-nominated games that were developed using this research: Picopoke and Snap Escape (interpretative photography and social play).
