About The Historic Trust

The Historic Trust’s goal with Unfolding was to have The CMDC program create a game that is fun, but that also engages people with the history of  Vancouver, Washington in new ways.  The Historic Trust believes in preserving history with the management and renovation of Vancouver’s historically significant buildings with philanthropic capacity and strength in community.

The Team

Unfolding: Vancouver was developed by students at Washington State University Vancouver in the Creative Media & Digital Culture Program (CMDC) program that included teams of creatives, designers, web developers, writers, content creators, social media specialists, and project managers. Along with the app, students created websites, designed assets, researched local history, wrote dialogue, planned marketing for social media, and performed usability testing for each version of the game.
