“Be neat” and “be on time” are the two most basic requirements of being an adult, according to Yishi Deng’s father. To understand her own approach as an adult, MFA Design and Technology student, Yishi Deng created a Virtual Reality game called Adulting as part of her work in Thesis Studio I at Parsons. Dedicated to her father’s concerns, the player addresses the daily challenges as a graduate student living abroad. Players begin the game in a bathroom where they are tasked to explore the room and complete the list of chores: feeding the cats before heading out, cleaning up the house, cleaning the sink, showering, etc. Each chore must be assigned with the correct sticker in order for the player to advance.
