Jocoi is a game design reflection on pregnancy loss as a pervasive part of women’s ordinary lives. By working through feelings of (post)maternity, Jocoi challenges the video game medium to make space for themes around care and tragedy.
The design process started with the stories of four bereaved women revisiting their relationships to their deceased babies. What is lost and what remains?
