Pride Interactive - Seattle, WA
Burn Ban is an interactive visual novel with social media simulation mechanics accessed through the in-game character’s cell phone. You assume the role of Twig, a mentally ill queer girl who is sent to Camp Sisquoc, a summer retreat for misguided students. Just as Twig is getting used to camp life, her dead friend’s social media mysteriously starts posting again, and she and friends are set with determining the mystery behind the posts.
Pride Interactive is a game-team made up of two developers, Harrison Barton and Morgan Rowe. They endeavor to further their mission in creating a more diverse environment in the industry through games that deal with serious themes, and accessible character driven narratives.
