I played the game and was moved by the whole experience.
As much as video games are a bit more about entertainment with focus on children, why couldn't people use games to express their concerns, motivate others speak their mind in a way that doesn't involve them speaking in public. I for one am happy to see those who take the idea of video games to that next level above entertainment.
Like most art, it might be rejected and refused by society but that doesn't mean it isn't art. I don't fully understand the reasons behind a painting and this might be the same for a politically driven video game but thats ok.
Great article Patrick and hope to read more from you soon.
