This is just an interesting game to raise awareness about poverty and whatnot in third world countries. What got me was the title of the website, games for change. I don’t think about it too much, but it’s actually a cool concept that video games can be used to raise awareness. Bogost talked about a similar type of game, Darfur Is Dying, and since my paper was on gaming and third world countries, I found this to fit nicely.
