CONSENT!

An interactive role-play web zine

CONSENT! An interactive role-play zine is a choose-your-own-adventure style dating simulator exploring different situations in which consent can be used. This project came about because of a game design contest put on by Games for Change. The contest was for their client, Sex, Etc. who specializes in education and discussions for teens about sex and the variety of topics associated with it. I decided to focus on the topic of consent because the earlier people are exposed to it the better. It is styled with the traditional zine aesthetic. Music by Pieter Montoulieu.

About

Founded in 2009, CHUDCHUD Industries is the banner under which Cody Diefenthaler releases a variety of media ranging from musical performances and festival organizing to graphic design and indie game development.

(That's me in the picture)

When not spending time with my family and creating music, art, games, and writing, I work at the Florida Center for Interactive Media creating e-Learning tools and courses for various state agencies in Florida. I specialize in web development with an emphasis on client-side scripting.

More professional information can be found on my LinkedIn profile.

Also, I did theater in high school and was in a crappy ska band when I was fifteen. I don't know if you can find those, I haven't bothered to look.
