Another opportunity to talk about my overtly complicated study lol.
I study Interactive Performance Design at a theater faculty of an art school. The short version is that we make interactive theater using the laws of gaming and user interaction. The longer version is, that we make a sort of hybrid form between theater and games: we learn theater subjects like dramathurgy, directing, lighting, acting, et cetera but also gaming subjects like game analysis, study of game genres, 3D-work, coding, et cetera. We combine this knowledge of both fields to not have passive audience member or players playing behind a computer screen, but to have them actively involved in the story. Examples of what we would be able to create range as far as a simple haunted house or an escape room to something more elaborate like Punch Drunk's Sleep No More that played in New York, which @DonValentino saw and I was all excited about in chat
For our last class assignment we made an interactive play about an autistic man who is unable to deal with emotion that came in contact with an alien from another dimension in which emotion did not exist. The participants were guided through the story through a series of emotion-invoking psychological tests and games in order to teach the alien emotions. I played the alien (voice acting).
