THE FACTS BEHIND FACTUALITY FROM THE CREATOR:
The majority of the FACTUALITY game board as well the color of the font on this website is gray to depict the large gray area in the American justice system.
The first quarter of the FACTUALITY board is a dedication to my heritage and parents. My mother is from Kingston, Jamaica, I was born in Cambridge, MA where my parents met, and their names are Paulette and Duval.
I attempted to sketch out some ideas that I had in mind for the game and realized that I could draw. I created all eight characters above. Laila is supposed to be me... she even has my signature side part and red lip!
I quickly taught myself how to use Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator and designed every component of the game by myself.
I manage a DIY blog (www.confessionsofadiyjunkie.com) and FACTUALITY by far is my greatest DIY project to date! Creating the FACTUALITY website was really easy, due to my experience with blogging.
