Entrant 2015

"how do you Do It?" is a game by Nina Freeman, Emmett Butler, David Coss, and Jonathan Kittaka. The game puts players in the role of an 11-year-old girl whose mother has just stepped out for an errand. The girl immediately grabs her dolls and furtively attempts to figure out how sex works using these plastic surrogates. The game is a portrait of how Nina, one of the developers, actually explored her sexuality as a child who had never been given "The Talk."
