About Mez Breeze
Mez Breeze’s award-winning creations have helped shape digital fiction for over two decades. #PRISOM, her anti-surveillance game created with Dreaming Methods and produced for The 2013 International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality, is “…the digital equivalent of Orwell’s 1984” (according to academic James O’Sullivan). Rebecca Cannon from the game site SelectParks has said: “Mez is not only one of the world’s most knowledgeable experts on contemporary digital culture, she’s also one of its most inspiring innovators.”
Having been shortlisted in the 2016 and 2015 Games Development Category of the Microsoft MCV Pacific Women In Games List which profiles the “most influential women across all facets of the Australian and New Zealand Games Industries”, Mez is currently a Coproducer, Creative Director and Lead Interactive Writer of the Inanimate Alice: Perpetual Nomads Virtual Reality/Novel Series.
