“Drown the Snake”
About this Project:
This project is an ARG (Alternate Reality Game), that lets the player go through 3 different people's lives experiencing misogyny.
The story addresses body image and the negative effects people can have on other people's perceptions of their bodies. It was created on Twine, so the players can click through the different stories, each choice with a unique ending.

I am Steffi Gogoi, a UX / Product Designer. Currently, I am working as a Senior UX Designer at ADP. I graduated with a master’s in Human-Computer Interaction from Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis. I have had a penchant for art since childhood. What began as pencil sketches, canvases, portraits, writing, craftwork, and dance went on to become an interest in design, technology, and manner of communication that came with it, shaping me along the way.
Moreover, Kudos to the team for coming up with a great representation of how educating people's perceptions of their bodies can help in eradicating the mental trauma people go through.
