Lunch Session 2A: Presentation of a Historical Wargame
12:00pm - 12:45pm
Session Chair: Jelle Janssens, Ind. Docmaker
The Ocean - A Historical Wargame set in a Red Cross Hospital during WWI
The Ocean is a historical wargame based on real events.
The game takes place during WOI in L’Océan, The Queens Hospital. At the end of 1914, Queen Elisabeth turned a former luxurious hotel into the biggest Red Cross hospital in Belgian History.
Through hypnosis, the player enters the mind of Christina, a voluntary nurse who served in L’Océan from 1914 until 1919! and is tasked to heal her traumas. The game questions faith in humanity and the progress of healthcare during this violent conflict.
It encourages players to think about the role of caretakers in society, sacrifice, and female heroism.
