A downloadable game

Arigato is a two-player conversation game designed around the values of communication, mindfulness, and gratitude.

Designed by: Abhishek Biswas, Cameron (Hoang) Phan, Heather Robertson, Yuvan Wickramasinghe

The aesthetics of Arigato are modeled after the Japanese lunar festival of Tanabata, presenting seasonal discussion prompts as a means for players to engage in mindful, contemplative conversation. As a communication tool, Arigato is intended to help us express gratitude for the people, places, ideas, and stories that matter to us the most.

The game is currently available for purchase at: https://www.thegamecrafter.com/games/arigato

All proceeds from the game will be donated to Child's Play: Child's Play - About

Arigato was created in May 2017 as a creative endeavor at USC Games. After devising the original concept for the game, I took on the role of Team Lead for and guided major design and production decisions on the project.


Note: I do not have a convienent print-and-play version of the Arigato at the moment; however, we may decide to explore the possibility of Kickstarting / self-publishing Arigato in the future. Please leave a comment if this is something you would be interested in!
