Ryerson University – The Dispatcher

Take on the role of a police dispatcher by responding to 9-1-1 calls! This game takes place in the early 90’s when tracking technologies were still being developed. With your guiding actions, you will navigate the caller to the best possible outcome.

Hands-on activity at the Festival:
The user is able to interact with the piece and navigate through the story by actively making important decisions using the telephone keypad interface. Instead of using a regular laptop, the story will unfold in a transcript (in the style of many investigative TV documentaries) on an old 90s monitor.
