Description: EFD-3016 is a two-player co-op game where humans try to outwit a face-tracking algorithm. One player must get their partner to correctly guess the emotion they’re making, using only their face, without the computer successfully detecting that emotion. It’s a game of subtlety and emotional nuance. It was featured in the ALT.CTRL exhibition of games at GDC 2017, and was an official selection at IndieCade 2017.
