Entering an escape room for the first time was an eye opening experience for Kristopher Berardi. The use of physical spaces to tell stories, create games and share experiences fascinates him. In undergraduate studies, they investigated how media and games allows folks to use play to explore gender, queerness, and identity. He now wants to expand on that research to push the limits of games and narratives in physical spaces can do to tell queer stories.
