Abstract: Charlotte is an exploration/walking simulator game that allows players to explore the history and culture of 19th century women through the short story, The Yellow Wall-paper and the life of its author, Charlotte Perkins Gilman. Players are put in the role of a woman trapped by the rest cure for hysterical tendencies so that they may empathize with the character's feelings of powerlessness and frustration.
