Language & Games Online Event

Tuesday, February 15, 2022 | 6:30 p.m.

When Kathryn Hymes and Hakan Seyalıoğlu combined forces to create a game studio, they realized their combined backgrounds (she’s a linguist, he’s a cryptographer) allowed them to explore both the power and the playfulness of language. Games, specifically language games, allow us to explore our own world, and create new ones, through the ways we communicate.

Kathryn Hymes and Hakan Seyalıoğlu are the masterminds behind Thorny Games, and award-winning independent game studio in Washington DC. The Language & Series is made possible by a grant from the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Foundation.
