[Livestream] Nominee: ‘Ye or Nay?
Presenting the 2020 IndieCade Nominees… ‘Ye or Nay?!
The original Guess Who? is a tabletop game where players compete to be the first to identify a mystery character by asking a series of yes or no questions. Guess Who? features a broad range of facial features, multiple races and two genders because it is focused on finding binary distinctions.
‘Ye or Nay? maintains the same rule structure, but subverts the original game by depicting only Black men. In ‘Ye or Nay? players are asked to identify what is unique about each Black man, an identity category that games have traditionally treated as one-note caricature. Additionally, a gender binary is replaced by the more realistic binary of being Kanye West or not being Kanye West.
