About The Team
Sungrazer Studio is an interdisciplinary team of 18 students from Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA.
Officially formed in September 2019, the student team came together with a collective mission to create interactive and civically engaged experiences. After various stages of iterative design, Sungrazer Studio decided to move forward and develop Resilience as their senior project.
In addition to conducting research and playtesting, the students consulted with advisors from Drexel’s Game Design, Computer Science, and Political Science departments in order to balance compelling gameplay with respectful and accurate portrayals of real-world situations.
Resilience is the studio’s senior capstone project, and has been under continuous development since September 2019.
Resilience is a sci-fi city-builder game for Windows, Mac, and Linux that fosters empathy for displaced peoples and explores how resource distribution impacts wellbeing in refugee camps.
In Resilience, you assume the role of refugee camp manager on a distant moon and are tasked with the livelihood of an alien race fleeing planetary disaster. Confront the day-to-day struggles of camp life and the structural problems of an underfunded aid system.
Resilience was the winner of the Best Student Game award at the 2020 Games for Change Award.
The game can be downloaded and played from itchi.io: https://sungrazerstudio.itch.io/resilience
