A Closed World is a game designed to deal with queer issues, which the designer noticed was an issue not commonly explored explicitly in the game medium. This title was created in response as part of a research project designed to create compelling queer content, and the research also explored the ways designers approach these themes when creating games to inspire reflection. A Closed World asks its players to consider normativity and what constitutes 'normal'.
