A Game To Feel Sensory Overload Like Sufffering From Autism – Auti-Sim [VIDEO]

Auti-SimAuti-Sim Autism Hyper-sensitivity Simulation is a game that helps players to gain empathy and understanding of autistic children. It was developed during Hacking Health Vancouver 2013 hackathon. The player navigates through a playground as an autistic child with auditory hypersensitivity. Proximity to loud children causes sensory overload for the player, impacting cognitive functions. This impact is represented as visual noise and blur, as well as audio distortion. Participants described the experience as visceral, insightful and compelling.
