Prasad’s PhD explores the potential of climate change games in making sense of various actions that can be taken to mitigate and adapt to climate change. It focuses on games that are played in a group set-up as it enables sharing of personal anecdotes and dilemmas while creating a sense of togetherness. As a part of his first research study, he designed a roleplaying game called ‘Climate Club’ through iterative playtesting with experts in climate change and game design domains. Presently the game is being evaluated with young adult players.
