Natural Tone

Natural Tone is a narrative role-playing game about my own lived experiences of autism, which I was only diagnosed in 2017. The game looks at how the avatar (myself) experiences situations and environments. Social masking is something that many high-functioning autistic women do in order to conform to societies’ standards, which is more difficult if you are a person of colour. In the game, I show the avatar externally maintaining a neutral persona, yet exhibiting sensory difficulties and anxiety related issues around her. As the player, you must help the character through these challenges, while experiencing them yourself to get through the day.
