Being Barry - Chris Nixon


Representing someones life in a board-game

Being Barry is a seasonal gift that turns Clare Barrys’ working day into a board-game.

Taking inspiration from Clare herself, each player begins the game in typical Clare Barry format – by being late. From there, each player is reliant on having enough caffeine to make it through the day in a race to make it back home to watch trash TV.

Through the game, you have deal with typical creative agency problems i.e. a stressed account team, urgent client deadlines and the odd colleague sacking. Beyond that, I began to weave the more ‘interesting’ elements from Clares life throughout the game – a creepy neighbour, her risqué freelance work and her obsession with online dating.

The entire Liquid team was included throughout games dialogue; highlighting the studio jokes, myths and characters.
