Trapezium uses narrative devices, gameplay and storytelling to question mainstream stories found in media and popular culture about the region.
The game abstracts the map of Kashmir into a trapezium-shaped puzzle, with pieces that reveal stories from each district and region of the valley.
Through the game, players are introduced to Kashmiri lives and the people’s experience of living side by side with the Indian army.
The game provides a safe and playful space for participants to have a frank and otherwise challenging dialogue.
By Sanket Jadia and Mario D’Souza.
