This archive, accessible at jazzhistorydatabase.com, was previously maintained by students and faculty who built the website by hand.

The Call of Karen
The Call of Karen is a PC simulation comedy game about a 1950s suburban housewife whose home is invaded by Cthulhu. The player controls the titular housewife, Karen, who is trapped in an unhappy marriage taking care of an ungrateful child, and must keep up appearances in the face of a home gone mad. The goal of this MQP was to create a fun, funny, and full-fledged game of high enough quality to be released on a major distribution platform such as Steam or the Epic Games Store. We also wanted to create a compelling narrative that deconstructed the nostalgia associated with the 1950s by telling a story from the often neglected and demeaned perspective of a 1950s suburban housewife. This report describes the production process of The Call of Karen, as well as showcasing procedures.
