ZenFri is pleased to announce they will be working with University of Manitoba Professor J.E Young and the Department of Computer Sciences on a research project entitled “Evaluating player empathy and narratives with new-media interactive characters”.

This collaboration is made possible through the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). Research will take place in 2013.

Corey says, “I look forward to seeing the research done on this topic, and how it can improve our understanding of how mediums affect story.”
