Abstract: Social Comics is a casual video game that allows players to act in short comic strips that they create. We designed Social Comics to be a fast paced game that engages the audience and players equally, in an effort to adapt it for parties and social gatherings. Each comic includes a unique background and speech bubbles that create a simple scene or situation in the comic strip. Players must quickly decide how to pose for the camera before it takes their photo, turning the players into comic characters.
